Now that the Pac Cup race entries are closed, I was wondering how the Division splits might look for the doublehanders. Above is how I think it will break down. I couldn’t get data on the Ohlson, but it surely will be in the slower of the two groups. Moonshine‘s PCR is from 2010.
The PacCup rating for these boats is computed as the NorCal PHRF Downwind Rating + 515, and is the handicap average boatspeed in seconds per mile. The Time-on-Distance allowance is the course distance (2080 nm) divided by boatspeed expressed in knots. So for example, Temerity will have to beat Plus Sixteen by 15.6 hours in order to correct out ahead in the final standings.
For about a day there it looked like there might be a late entry in the fast boat, DH group, which might have thrown the E-27s in with us in the slower group. But it looks like this is the fleet that will be racing as of the deadline.
