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.

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.
