In line with current RYA policy on encouraging sustainability PYAG announce a 10 point increase on wooden boats and those made from 100% recycled plastic. Wooden masts and booms to get an additional 10 points for each spar.

Sounds good to me! If you want this all year round, visit the cvrda! Well, for the spars bit, anyway.

We're going for that handicap increase this year - hoping to take Squirrel back to it's old home at Hunts in memory of Mike Liggett, a previous owner. CVRDA handicap (including wooden mast and cotton sails) for a vintage Merlin Rocket is 103 which is roughly 1170 in 4 digit world. Note the drawer for the spinnaker!
