Neither TOD or TOT can fix that but boy do some like to argue over it. Oh and Bill, don't or didn't you guys use TOD for some of the longer ORCA races? If so, why?
TOD makes good sense for boats that spend most of a race at their hull speed. But that ain't multis. Faster with more wind (TOT) is generally better.
In SoCal the winds are generally diurnal, they shut off at night. Big race organizers prefer PHRF TOD for all boats, so we oblige. On overnight races, TOD produces results as reasonable as TOT (which are bad when drifting). Not especially accurate, but still a race.
After analyzing 15 years of N2E races, I got NOSA to agree to not give a grand prize to the first overall corrected boat. But rather to raffle it off between all the corrected class winners (of which we have a dozen or more). Corrected results in a small class are much more accurate than across a dissimilar fleet. And giving all class winners an equal chance at a grand prize is much better than relying on corrected results, per se. IMHO.
