Hi SUG Members,
A couple of things.
Does anyone have a rating file containing US Sailing wind indexed data for 2020. I have downloaded a PDF of values from US Sailing but it is dated 2017?
The second thing is that I have had a conversation with a UK user of Sailwave who asked the question “How do I dual score using default RYA PY rating values and wind indexed values?” This is a first for me but not a surprise now it has been asked; well bit of a surprise because I was not aware of anyone using or considering using wind indexed ratings here in the UK.
I have one way in mind that may be achieve this but it does not allow one to score using both in one go using aliases. Perhaps Jon you have something to enlighten me; if not then what would be ideal in my simplistic terms is a new rating option ‘PY using wind indexed values’.
Aside from the how to achieve the request is the one of generating a Wind Indexed rating file using RYA PY ratings. This is a whole new level of debate and generation of appropriate values. Is any one in UK using one?
The RYA PYS on-line system could in theory, in my view, generate values as long as the clubs submitting the data included wind speed data. Sailwave can have this data entered as part of the race data and it is required, if using wind indexed ratings, to select the appropriate rating.
Looking forward to your responses and any data you might have.
