We have lots of different sized yachts at the Mayhem Event.
Normally yacht races are set up for yachts all of the same size, or class.
Bigger yachts are usually faster than small yachts.
But there are ways of racing different sized yachts together !!.
All of the yachts set off together.
All the yachts are timed how long they took to finish the course.
The fastest yacht starts the next lap LAST !!!.
The slowest starts FIRST !!!.
All of the other boats start according to their finishing time.
Any BIG changes in times can be adjusted to keep things in order.
The Birkenhead and Fleetwood Clubs use this method - - I have sailed in races using it and it works !.
It all works a treat !, after the first race - - also timed, corrections can be made to the start times for following races.
