BOPTYS uses the Sail 100 progressive handicap system with a ECHO 60%-40% adjustment:
Boats start a series with their handicap carried over from the same type of series in the previous year, if we don’t have this we use NZTYA number.
After a race the ECHO handicap is the handicap needed for each boat to finish in a dead heat. This is then used to adjust the boats start handicap on a 60% this race handicap and 40% ECHO handicap to work out the next race handicap. Vice Commodore
