David Mettam from Axmouth has emailed me:

Despite our advanced age, i.e. two members of the team mid-80s, we are still winning which is upsetting most of our competitors. For many years, we have adopted the Byron system which, as you know, is based on measurement. I can’t locate any Parker 21s who race on a regular basis. Have you any ideas?

There is talk here of reverting to the RYA personal handicaps which I don’t like, and indeed, this was rejected by the club several years ago.

I am of course and aware of the new RYA system, which, as it is also based on measurement, should be very close to Byron

Best wishes, David.

So if you're racing your P21, what handicap system does your club use?
