XL2 is a blast from the past. With significant upgrades and new sails she could challenge Top Gun and Boss Racing for line honours. 1993 was a clean sweep for XL2 when it won line honours, OMR and Performance Handicap. In 1995 it won OMR again.

B2G History

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.
