- The experiment introduced early last year to encourage more boats to take part in the handicap fleets on Sunday morning has come to an end. The experiment introduced a smaller course for the slow handicap fleet and also created a medium handicap fleet. Neither change generated any extra interest so Racing Committee has reluctantly reverted to the previous format, with the club slow handicap starting at 1001. The slow handicap boats will sail a full course although there may be a variation in the number of laps sailed by different boats. The results will continue to be based on adjusted average lap timings.
- The change point between fast and slow handicap boats will be 1000 for all Sunday racing. This change will not apply to Wednesday evening racing for the remainder of the 2017 series.
