Notes Open Handicap Winners      
The handicap ratings are generated from the Travellers and Nationals results and shouldn't be taken at all seriously!!    
Datchet Graeme Willcox  
A handicap score, not shown above, is calculated for each open attended. Castle Cove Ben Hawkes  
It's a proportion of finishing position to number of entries expressed in terms of a 1000. Weston Richard Franks  
Score = 1000 / No of entries x (Position - 0.5). Hythe & Saltwood Adrian Smith  
So if 1000 boats compete, each will have their finishing position minus 0.5 as the score Yorkshire Dales Paul Ross  
If 10 compete the winner will score 50. Second will be 150. 3rd 250, up to 10th at 950. Nationals Sam Barker  
If 50 compete the winner will score 10. Second will be 30. 3rd 50 up to 50th who will be 990. Broadstairs Dave Adams  
Therefore the better the result and the bigger the fleet then the lower the score for the open. Rutland Simon Dodds  
Then 10 points are deducted from the score for each helm beaten with a better, lower, handicap before the open.    
Most Improved Sam Barker  
The score is then used to calculate the handicap after an open. Highest Newcomer Eden Hyland  
The current rating is calculated by:-
    If the score for a meeting is less than the previous rating i.e. they have performed better than their previous rating,
    then half the difference between previous rating and the score is subtracted.
    If the score is worse than the previous rating i.e. performed worse than their previous rating, then quarter of the
    difference between previous rating and the score is added to the rating.
    Therefore the rating can go up quicker than down.
    There's also allowances made for not completing a meeting or having no finishes at all.
The sailor with the largest negative change is the handicap winner for the open.
Anyone with no results in the year gets archived off. If they reappear they continue from their last rating.
