Starting a Personal Handicap Series

I have been playing with the SWPH feature for some time now. We run a ‘sternchaser’ handicap event in our club, when we try to get all the boats finishing together.

We keep the times for all boats, so I can use the inbuilt SWPH feature.

We have many boats of varying potential and speed (Victorian Yardsticks (VY) from 99 to 130s)

My question is what rating (or handicap) should I START the boats on in the beginning of teh season? My guess is that I should start them on maybe the VY. This what I have done, but is there a better way?
