Year 2015 statistics

To write at least one blog post per year here's again some statistics from last year, just like I did year ago.. I have chosen to use the race start time to decide which year races belong, so the Christmas to Christmas race which finished this year is included in last years statistics.

Note that these include only fleet races.

The largest winning margins in 2015

In absolute time the largest margins were:
  1. aner59 by 02:02:41 in Christmas to Christmas 2015 after sailing 16 days 09:26:04
  2. karriv by 01:24:10 in Beru to Bora Bora after sailing 8 days 19:26:37
  3. rumskib by 00:53:27 in SWR2014-2015 Leg 3 - Abu Dhabi to Sanya after sailing 24 days 09:59:59
That's right, only two races from all races run last year were won by over 1 hour margin. 

The largest winning margins in percentages were:
  1. A2 by 1.13% in Pacific NW Inshore Race - WX Test 2 after sailing 1 day 16:04:54
  2. karriv by 0.66% in Beru to Bora Bora after sailing 8 days 19:26:37
  3. kenza by 0.59% in Brisbane to Keppel Tropical Yacht Race 2015 after sailing 2 days 03:26:58

As these numbers compare the winners margin to second place, I additionally looked how tight the top-10 was. These races have the biggest margin between 1st and 10th in absolute time or in percetages:
