  • IRC Rating
    IRC is a rating rule to handicap different designs of keelboats allowing them to race together. Each boat’s rating (her ‘handicap’) is calculated using measurements of the boat; her length, weight, draft, sail area, etc.

  • Offshore Racing Rule
    In the fall of 2004, three major US yacht clubs, the Chicago Yacht Club, Cruising Club of America and Transpacific Yacht Club, joined forces in an alliance called the Offshore Racing Association (ORA). ORA was formed to promote and support the use of VPP-based handicapping and has undertaken the task of developing a new measurement-based rating rule that provides the fairest handicapping possible. ORR is intended to be a non-type forming measurement rule that fairly rates properly designed and prepared yachts which are equipped for offshore racing.

  • Performance Handicap Racing Fleet of Lake Erie (PHRF-LE)
    The Performance Handicap Racing Fleet of Lake Erie (PHRF-LE) was founded in 1976 for the sole purpose to unite in a common organization those engaged in sail yacht racing and to establish and maintain a handicap system for sailing yachts which will reflect the speed potential of well-sailed properly race equipped yachts.

  • PHRF Calculator
    How Fast Is Your Boat? Calculates Approximate Average Boat Speed and Seconds per Mile Speed Differences. Assumes 10 knots True Wind Speed, a Windward/Leeward Course, optimal jibing angles, and flat water. Calculated speed is an approximation assuming normal pointing ability, etc. A high pointing boat capable of tacking through smaller angles or a boat capable of reaching lower downwind might have somewhat less boat speed for the same PHRF rating.

    PHRF of Narragansett Bay is the performance handicap rating association for Narragansett Bay and Rhode Island Sound.

  • The IM-S-Timator®
    Approximates IMS General Purpose Rating. It is surprisingly accurate for about 90% of the boats it has been tested with. Results are frequently within plus or minus 12 seconds a mile. Major sources of inaccuracy include lack of data for hull shape, lifting surfaces, righting moment, pitching moment, rig weight and crew weight.
