Copies of past handicap Hotlaps data

Postby Jane Fossett » Wed Jun 25, 2008 5:55 am

I thought it might help to re-post the past spreadsheets, showing the lap data for different boats on the B1A and F4 courses. These courses no longer exist due to the added sims, terraforming of Bella Lavella Island, and NYC's decision to move the raceline to Manning Strait.

"Hotlaps" came into existence 18 months ago. It's a fun, easy way for skippers to record and compare their individual lap times. It's also a great way to sharpen your sailing skills.
Many of the yacht clubs designate one course as their 'Hotlaps Course," and skippers post their best lap times in a discussion thread here each month (such as "NYC HOTLAPS JULY 2008").

Since skippers sail and race different kinds of boats, for the past few months we've been using a hotlaps course to generate a PHRF-style Handicap system.

The current PHRF Handicap course is "NYC Hotlaps 2008." Skippers are invited to sail that course and then post their 'good lap times' (not just their best lap times) in that thread. The lap times are then included in the spreadsheet at the top of this thread to generate handicap data. The handicap table allows us to adjust the scores of individual boats when a mixed fleet races.

Posted in wrong place: moved to results thread.

As an aside, the button says "Edit/Delete", but there is no option to delete once you get here.

Another addition to Jane's post on 'hotlaps' the prefixes of 'SYC, NYC' simply point to the yacht club names. Each one has it's own thread and it's own hotlaps course.

((sorry, looks like a new column in your spreadsheet Jane!)

13:06

Will get faster, I expect maybe a minute...will do some more tonight and tomorrow....theres a couple of nuances and..oddities in regards to compass headings (35 degrees from the line will take you wayyyyyy left of the island near the pink mark before tacking to the yellow!!)

13:54

Copy of past NYC Olympic M1 PHRF Hotlap data

Postby Jane Fossett » Fri Oct 10, 2008 6:47 am

NYC Olympic M1 is closed for data collection.
Here's a copy of the spreadsheet data.
The Handicap Conversion factors from M1 are listed on the current Summary Table, which is updated frequently in the first post of this thread.

Madaket PHRF Hotlaps

Postby Jane Fossett » Thu Apr 23, 2009 12:42 pm

Hear the results so far based on 192 laps by 25 skippers sailing 19 different boats. The handicapped factors are shown in blue, and the The summary table lits the 2008 handicaps as well, for comparison.
There is still considerable variability in these early numbers, but the trend seems moving in the right direction.
