Statistics

People seemed to appreciate the Handicap Analysis, and to have something to talk about at the bar, as well as on the club forum.

In the same spirit of "Lies, Damn Lies, and Statistics", some more numbers from Sunday Racing are shown below - but please: Don't shoot the messenger! ALL numbers are approximate, and are totally affected by rounding errors, the number of glasses of wine drunk and whether I sail in that fleet or not...

For details of the Wednesday Evening statistics, please follow this pointer.

Total boats racing

The total number of boats who entered the racing on a Sunday during the past few seasons, excluding Oppie Club and other special events or Open Meetings, was:

You will notice that this Autumn's numbers are down slightly - due to the weather over the last few months often being too strong to sail, or too light!

  • The fleet races during the Frostbites, Spring, Summer, Autumn series attracted 33 different boats, helmed by 38 different people.
  • We had an average of 5 boats per race signed on (and more than that sailing!) and up to 12 at any one time.
  • 14 different people won a race, with just 3 boats winning 10 or more races.
  • We had 6 different winners of the 8 series.
  • 14 different boats completed 10 or more races. The prize for the most races was split between Malcolm MacVean/Brian Deacon and Chris/Gill Jordan with 44 races each; although Steve Middleton and Chris Rowlands completed 45 races by swapping helms.
  • Chris Rowlands was possibly the most successful helm overall, winning 61% of his races; closely followed by Tom Jones (60%), Steve Middleton (52%) and Rob Martin (50%).
