50grams butter
50grams cheese
6 cups water
Flour to thicken
Salt & pepper seasoning.

STINGRAY WINGS WITH CUMIN AND POTATOES

All over North Africa the standard flavouring for fish is cumin.  Small skate, stingaree or ray, tender enough to fry quickly, should be used for this Tunisian dish.  Pieces of ray wing from Larger fish should be boiled for ten minutes first.  (Classic French method of cooking skate is to poach then serve with caper sauce)

Ingredients:

4 garlic cloves crushed.
1 ½ tsp ground cumin. 
Salt.
About 100 ml/ ½ cup olive oil.   
4 small skate wings total weight about 1 kilo.
500 g (4-5) new potatoes, boiled and sliced.  
Pepper. 
2 tbsp. Capers.  
1 lemon quartered.

Mix together the garlic, cumin, salt and 3-4 tbsp. Of the oil. 

Cut the fish into pieces about 5cm wide, cutting in between the long soft bones, and rub the pieces with the garlic mixture.

In a large frypan, fry the pieces in batches in shallow oil, giving them about 4 minutes on each side, until the flesh begins to flake away from the bone. 

Transfer to a baking dish, cover with foil and keep warm in the oven.

Saute the potatoes slowly in the same oil, adding salt and pepper and more oil, and turning them over until they are lightly golden. 

Add the capers towards the end.

Serve the fish hot on a bed of sauteed potatoes, with lemon wedges.

Offshore Multihull Rating (OMR) System

The MYCQ Administers the Offshore Multihull Rating (OMR) System, which is used to handicap all Multihull Yachts. It is similar to the IRC system used for monohulls but is tailored to be applied to all Multihull Designs. This website provides:

The MYCQ regularly reviews the OMR formulas by looking at race results and analysing trends and new technologies to ensure the OMR system is current and as accurate as possible.

As with most handicapping systems, it is not perfect and rather than criticizing the system and the people that administer it we encourage you to become involved in the club and contribute to developing the system.
