2021 Bay Race 1 - Mud Island

Six boats lined up between Hybers and Lockyer for an upwind start, Indian chief skippered by Geoff Berg did a great start, sailed down the line and got the jump on everyone and we all fell into line eventually. The breeze was light and Kestrel managed to find a dead spot closer in to Green Island and took awhile to get going. The first mark, the cardinal on the east of Mud Island allowed everyone to get a reaching sail out, I’m told Double Black Diamond tried every sail in his wardrobe, the bright pink spinnaker was obvious after the second mark. Zero carried her Code Zero all the way home from the first mark with only one Gybe necessary, our top speed for the day was 10.9 knots SOG but there was no way we could catch Indian Chief. Attitude looked like catching us a few times on the upwind leg but once we got some angle into the Code Zero we pulled away. Congratulations to Double Black Diamond for winning both OMR and PRS and Indian Chief for the Line Honours.

Offshore Multihull Rating (OMR) System

The MYCQ Administers the Offshore Multihull Rating (OMR) System, which is used to handicap all Multihull Yachts. It is similar to the IRC system used for monohulls but is tailored to be applied to all Multihull Designs. This website provides:

The MYCQ regularly reviews the OMR formulas by looking at race results and analysing trends and new technologies to ensure the OMR system is current and as accurate as possible.

As with most handicapping systems, it is not perfect and rather than criticizing the system and the people that administer it we encourage you to become involved in the club and contribute to developing the system.
