New PY handicaps

I am pleased to say we were one of 150 clubs in UK that supplied data to the RYA via their web portal that allows better statistical analysis. A few surprises in the list but overall most changes are minor. Laser and Supernova increase PY by four which is surprising as I think Supernovas should have a much lower handicap. Biggest loser when also considering changes over last few years is the RS300 whose PY is down 6 to 979. Mos classes at ASC have stayed unchanged. These new PYs will be used from 6th march.
