Mar 25 – HMS 2022 is now available

HMS has been updated to match the RRS2021-2024, notably some new scoring designations. The new version, including documentation is available here

The MYA link provides the following notes about the changes.

The Heat Management System (HMS) and the associated HMS Scoring Spreadsheet have been updated from HMS 2016 v1 to HMS 2022 v1. The update incorporates the new scoring abbreviations of ‘NSC – Not Sailed the Course’ and ‘UFD – U Flag Disqualification’ and removes two redundant abbreviations ZFP and DGM. This brings the scoring into alignment with RRS 2021-2024. A correction to Schedule A6 and a number of minor changes to the text have also been made.

Jan 27 – Time for a Newsletter, looking for content.

The last CRYA newsletter was published in the Spring of 2020, so we are overdue for another newsletter. Did you build a new boat during the Covid lockdown? Send us your updates with photos so they can be added to the Winter-Spring 2022 Newsletter. Contact me here if you would like to submit something.
