How does CRAM race dissimilar boats?

How do we do it? One of the biggest concepts that our newest sailors get a crash course in is how do we run a regatta with a bunch of different boats. Often we find new sailors under the impression that their 1985 Hobie 16 can't compete with the modern Formula boats. Well the thing is, they aren't even scored together!

2016: The Year of the 16

This has been quite an incredible year to say the least, and I wanted to take a moment to thank our 2016 Hobie 16 members. It has been an honor to server as your fleet captain for the past two years. My decision to move to the F18 fleet came with a heavy heart. Ever since I joined CRAM I have looked with envy to our bigger catamaran brothers, but with my opportunity to move up it was difficult thinking about the fleet I was leaving behind. It’s not all about the competition, but the friendships forged that mean the most.
