It does not do the class any favours when we try to get people interested in the boat when they mainly have handicap racing.
Its all our fault though – there are not a high proportion of slow sailors in the OK class compared with the Solo – say. Consequently our handicap returns make out the boat is quicker than it is. Newer and slower sailors don’t join because the handicap is so cr*p so the issue gets worse. Don’t have an answer because the computer experts on the statistics don’t seem to sail much!
