Personal handicaps

I’d like to introduce the personal handicap idea for our Wednesday evening PHRF racing. I’ll use aliases, so we can score both ways.

But here’s a question: after each race we’ll get a new rating for the next race. But I can’t tell how that race is scored using the standard SW implementation. Our formula is a TCF of 650 / (520 +rating). Will that be the formula for subsequent races, or do we revert to another TCF system?

Hi John,

The NHC progressive handicap system is designed for TCF. It does support rating systems such as Portsmouth Yardstick by doing a conversion from PY to TCF - perform the calculation and then convert back to PY. But there has to be a direct relationship between the two rating systems

So the easiest for you would be to use a TCF rating for the progressive handicap otherwise you are into a custom system (which is possible with Sailwave if you wish to go that route).
