Mediterranean Rating System – CIM. Time for change?
For all those yachts that race annually in the popular Mediterranean classic regatta circuit each yacht's rating is often under debate. With a diverse range of yachts competing, from a 6-Metre to a three masted gaff schooner, from a Falmouth Working Boat to an S&S yawl, what are the best options available to us that will provide an all encompassing and fair rule. The current rating predominantly used is the 'International Mediterranean Committee', or CIM rating as it is commonly known. On one side the classic scene is full of unhappy Owners and Captains who plague CIM with e-mails that hardly get noticed. On the other side is the silent majority who are either happy with the current rating system or quietly stew looking for a vent. Is it time to change or should the new CIM 2014-2017 rules govern Mediterranean Classic racing…….? Debate open!!
