JCH Classic Handicap – End of year newsletter04/12/2016
Every year the JCH Technical Committee of the JCH has worked on adjustments and evolutions that will
be implemented for the next year. The work focuses on themes proposed by some of you but also on
the ideas of the members of the JCH.
These are the main changes that will be applied in 2017:
In 2017, a major study, initiated in 2016 (for possible application in 2018) will be carried out and
uniquely for the JCH will take into account the performance factors of the different classes of boats.
The first simulations carried out are very encouraging and should ultimately refine the quality of
2016 was also an opportunity to develop the use of the JCH in England, Spain and Portugal. We are
continuing our efforts to bring this system to a higher international level and believe that it will
receive a good reception abroad.
In 2017 a special effort will be made to intensify the actual measurement of vessels by inspection
teams. The credibility of the JCH depends on it creating a level playing field where competitors
believe that the standard is fair to all.
