MYC Handicap

MYC handicaps in/for specialty races

Handicap Earned (Hndcp earned): The earned handicap (Hndcp earned) for each race is calculated by dividing your boat's elapsed time by the elapsed time of the first E Scow in that race.

Handicap Used (Hndcp used): The calculated handicap used for a specialty race (Hndcap used) is the average of the handicaps earned in the last 3 to 5 races.

Boats need at least three races under their belt to get a Hndcap Used rating to qualify for a handicapped final rating .

The code for prior races is M for Memorial Day, F for the 4th of July and L for Labor Day, plus the year, thus M03 is Memorial Day 2003.

Corrected Time: Your corrected time is calculated by dividing your finishing time by your handicap used.

Thus, if you finish in 1 hour and have a handicap of 2.000, your corrected time is 30 minutes.

On the other hand, if you finish in 1 hour and have a handicap of 0.500, your corrected time is 2 hours.
