    Default Byron handicap ratings unavailable

    I've tried hard over the years, not to take much notice of the "Byron Software" handicap listing for cruisers, largely because they seem to have been compiled by someone glancing at each yacht's specs, rather than from empirical evidence...

    ...but the figures were if nothing else, a theoretical guide to potential performance indicators within those specs...

    ...yet today, I've found that the website isn't available. Does anybody know where else the same figures can be found?

    Better still, is there an evidence-based rating system in place for cruisers, other than small-scale local club listings?

    The owners of this website have collected quite a bit of performance data. http://www.blur.se/boats/

    Mainly polars of cruiser racers.

    Thanks for those, gents...the ORC polars are great, if rather more than I was looking for; I was hoping for just a PY-style figure.

    I found this 2012 RYA site, which claims to list many cruiser Portsmouth Numbers, along with their likely degree of accuracy...
