I recall on another forum somewhere a system based on about 4 categories defining the eras boats can compete in. Example 40-50-60's with fuller keels, 70's post Stollerys Bloodaxe, an 80's era up to 93 when the Scalpel arrived.
Each could be given a burgee to fly noting which category they are in red,blue green etc and ranked accordingly. Trophy could also be offered to the home builder as well.
If each club introduced a system like this people will be scrounging around looking for old boats or building new ones.
