Spice Sailing

NEWS - We have launched a new forum/ messageboard! To view CLICK HERE

A few years ago i developed a Spice website, however when Microsoft decided to dis-continue the system i was using it was removed and i didn't have time to re-develop it!! I have now found time and here it is. It is a little basic at the moment, but i hope to improve it over the coming months . . . hopefully!

Here is our Spice, no.320

Spice 320

The Spice Portsmouth Yardstick Number

Current Spice PY Number - 950

The RYA has not published a Spice PY number for many years due to not receiving enough returns for assessment. I would like to work out an accurate number for the Spice and need your help to do this. If possible can you either send me results from races that a Spice has competed in, ideally along with some details of the weather conditions and whether it was sailed well in the race. I generally know what results i achieve in other boats, i can normally work out the position i'd expect to achieve based on the weather, wind direction, tide, no. of tactical errors and of course the no. of swims!! If this detail is not available then just the results will be a good start.

The PY or Trial Number I would like to recommend for 2016 is 950, this is based on data and information i have obtained by speaking to other Spice sailors.
