Your "Class Association" and PHRF-LO - how to get an ODR rating.
PHRF-LO has many "Class" boats that, over the past 30 years, have requested a "Class" rating.
A list of these classes can be viewed by reviewing our Handicappers Manual - Appendage.
If you have a "Class Association" and would like to apply for a "Recognized Class Association ODR Handicap, you will need to apply to Central Council for approval.
What you will need!
1. Class Rules published on-line with a link to the web site.
2. A letter or email from a member of the Class Association Board, requesting this designation
3. A complete list of all maximum sail sizes and boat specifications.
Why do we need this?
PHRF-LO does not just apply a "Handicap number" to Class boats.
Our ODR ratings are handled differently than in other PHRF regions. Please read our article on PHRF-LO and One Design Rating (ODR) - explained.
Central Council will review the request and submitted information at their next scheduled meeting and either approve the request or deny it. If approved, a list of adjustments for one-design boats within that class will be published in the Handicappers Manual - Appendage.
