Grafham GP Results
An exciting day with 20-25 knots and gusts up to 30 knots. The challenging conditions led to many deciding to stay on shore, with 73 boats taking to the water out of the total entry of 169. The conditions in race 1 took their toll on the fast fleet with many retirements, the wind dropped for race 2 and then picked up again towards the end of race 3. Those who competed enjoyed exciting racing. The fast fleet was won for the second year running by David White and Jon Sweet from GWSC in a Nacra F18. Winner in the medium fleet was Stuart Jones from Datchet Water in a Contender and the slow fleet was won by Fergus Barnham and Andy Hunter from Snettisham Beach in a GP14. more...

Dynamic GPS Handicapping

Handicap racing is now the bedrock of the sailing scene, but traditional handicapping techniques have failed to keep up with the wide range of boat designs we now see on the race course, covering classes as diverse as Toppers and Foiling Moths, and the corresponding wide range of speeds. With the vast amount of data generated by GPS tracking is is now possible to have a more dynamic form of handicapping that adapts itself to the conditions experienced in each race to become more context sensitive. more...
