Zoom Handicap?

Post by Rik_A » Sat Dec 23, 2017 11:32 am

We have a Zoom (Fletcher Marine, not a Zoom 8 ) turned up in Tollesbury. Any ideas on a suitable PN as a starting point?

I suppose as RS500 would be comparable in size and sail area, and was also designed for two lighter (younger) crew? But the Zoom would not be as quick.

Try a Laser 2 handicap to begin with.
