Spinnaker or Non-Spinnaker?
The membership application asks if you will fly your spinnaker for our events, but that’s just a general guide for our scoring and ratings committees. Competitors still have leeway to declare S or NS for certain events. This extends to other configurations as well – trying out a new jib size, props, etc… (those check boxes on the registration form).
Our scoring system and award structure permits different boat configurations for each of the events in the following list. Each bullet reflects an individual series and you will be scored in the same configuration for all events in that series.
- Yacht of the Year Series
- Beercan Series
- Dave O’Donnell Memorial Regatta
- Pursuit Races
- Commodores Cup
- Labor Day Regatta
- Frostbite Races
If you wish to change your boat from the configuration on your membership application, you MUST alert the Race Committee before your start. For anything other than spinnakers, advanced notice to the R/C is requested as such changes require research.
All changes must conform to class and phrf rules, of course.
