1986 Penny RYA Yardstick?

Anyone happen to have a copy of the circa 1986 RYA Portsmouth Yardstick numbers?
A typical race night at my club includes Laser's, Laser II's, 505, Fireball, 420...all starting together, and I think the current 2010 RYA numbers (http://www.rya.org.uk/infoadvice/racing ... stick.aspx) are for 'fancy' I14's and not a late 80's Cross III Penny?

We used a rating of ~900 for Pennys in Ottawa and that seemed to work well. The Penny was pretty even with the Vanguard Vector and a touch slower than the Laser 5000.

The new rules I14s have been rated at 780 when raced against 49ers (744). This seems pretty fair, 840 would be far too generous for the modern boats.

Cheers,
Doug

Cool thanks - my boat is a Penny from Ottawa so that should work well. The 505 handicap is 902 and I seem comparable to our local 1980's 505.

The club is soon to gain a 1955 International 14 - any clues on a handicap for that :D !?!?
