Racing a manta 3Fri 16 Jun 2023 21:45:38
Chris McGinley Chris McGinley Thu 08 Jun 2023 09:20:06 Hi everyone,
I was wondering if anyone has ever raced their manta. I was looking for its handicap to race informally against other boats. Any handicap system would do, IRC, PHRF, PY etc.


Mark Mark Thu 08 Jun 2023 13:46:36 When I bought my manta (July 2000) the fellow i bought it from told me that the PY was 1266 (Battle of Hastings plus 200 was how he said he remembered it).
However, I've never actually seen any documentation anywhere that confirms this.

For example, you will find that a Manta 19 races with a handicap (118) not far behind the Folkboat (114)
