RYA YTC - Home Page

Welcome to RYAYTC
formerly the South West Yacht Time Correction System

The RYAYTC powered by the RORC Rating Office is a new initiative to promote participation in racing by cruising yachts and cruiser-racers. The objective is to provide a simple rating assessment so that skippers of any skill level may feel encouraged to race their boats in club events and port regattas.

The system is based on the statistical models developed by Professor Linda Wolstenholme, of the Cass Business School and Emsworth Slipper SC. It has been developed over several years by a team of enthusiasts at Mylor Yacht Club and has gradually been adopted by a number of clubs and regattas in the southwest of England. The approach is to develop a boat's rating in a open and transparent manner to achieve fair racing as required by the Racing Rules of Sailing. Full details of the process are in the Policy and Procedures Document in this website. And best of all, it's free to use!

YTC has a proven ability to provide closely competitive racing for a wide variety of yachts. With the support of the RYA (the sport's governing body) and the experience of the RORC Rating Office the future of the system is assured and it can now be made available to a wider group of users.



The RYAYTC team hope that all users of the system have an enjoyable & rewarding racing season in 2022!
