Due to family commitments and PTBO work I’ve been a bit slow getting the results out for the last two weeks. Here are the combined results for 16 and 23 May. Note, due to my poor sailing instructions I have had to split the results by fleet, creating two parallel race series. I will update the instructions for the Mid-Summer Series so that we the PY fleet can race against the 707s. Dom.
UPDATES: I incorrectly updated the results, and have now restored the original (and correct) places for R4.

Our intention to have informal “practice races” on Wednesday evenings from 14 April with a regatta on Sunday 2 May to kick things off.
Here’s a summary of the yacht racing calendar this year:
The Spring Series starts on 05/04/21for 5 weeks (1 or 2 races per evening)The Summer Series starts 16/06/21 for 7 weeksL’Aber Wrac’h Race is planned for 25/06/21Falmouth week is 08/08/21Autumn series Starts 18/08/21 with the season finishing in late September
To allow continuity for the 707 One Design racing series and to encourage new PY boats to race I have created a Combined Fleet super-series. We will keep the existing One Design series, but we’ll also have a Combined Fleet series that allows PY boats to race 707s (and each other) using the TCC / IRC handicapping system.
The TCC ratings were taken from various sources found online. Handicap can and will be updated over time as ratings become more accurate.
A breezy start to the Mid Summer series. Avocet had issues with an overpowered kite causing broaching and loss of position, but a lift on the last leg allowed them to get back past Dragun. Morgawr were two-handed and chose to go white sails only.
