Separate Race Committee boats will be assigned to the PHRF class to insure the ability to change course if conditions should warrant.The Cruising class is offered to encourage normally non-racing boats and sailors to participate. Boats without a current rating certificate will be assigned a handicap by the race committee and may race in any class. Skippers who wish to register their Boats in the Cruising Class must adhere to the ICRC Cruising Class rules. The scoring system will be Time-on-Time for PHRF boats. One completed race will constitute a regatta. Awards will be given in One-Design, Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, and Cruising classes as deemed appropriate by the PRO. Awards will be based on the number of entries in each class. Two registered boats constitute a class.
