2018 PHRF Splits and Scoring
Again in 2018, scoring for ALL divisions (spinnaker and non-spinnaker) will use the PHRF Time on Time (ToT) Scoring System.
If you are interested in how the TCF is calculated and applied, US Sailing offers a comprehensive overview of ToT at: http://www.ussailing.org/racing/offshore-big-boats/rating-rules/#1471969534315-2e06dd00-392d
Another great explanation comparing ToD and ToT written by Peter Oden, HRYRA Rules and Appeals Chairman, can be found HERE.
The PHRF Class splits will be the same as 2017. They are......
Class 1 - PHRF less than 130, with spinnakers
Class 2 - PHRF greater than 130, with spinnakers
Class 3 - All without spinnakers
