BCR (Back Calculated Ratings)

Sailing yardstick Link

These LMSA numbers are based on an individual boats performance in the Rum Races of 2013.  The number is the average of all the races that each boat finished with the best and worst finish thrown out. The number is the handicap that would cause each boat to have a corrected time equal to the average time of each race. Extensive analysis by myself and at least one other yacht club seem to indicate that this is a reasonable method for an individual handicap system.
