Every year Central Council must review boat classes for various reasons, this generally occurs during the meeting following the Annual General Meeting.
Some classes have been marked for review based on the results of analyzing the submitted race results over the past 5 years. These boats are listed in the Summary Analysis and noted with a ? beside the CUMULATIVE results to indicate there is an alert.
The Central Council of handicappers must review any Class of Yacht that appears with 3 or more question marks, as mandated by the PHRF-LO member Clubs.
The District Council of handicappers must review any Class of Yacht that appears with under 3 question marks in the CUMULATIVE results and that has double digit calculated differences for at least 4 years, as mandated and reviewed by the Central Council of handicappers.
NEW OR CHANGED HANDICAPS
All "NEW" classes are created by the PHRF-LO Districts, as are some handicap changes. These are also reviewed by Central Council.
Appeals to handicaps are addressed on an on-going basis, depending on when they are received for review by Central Council.
A "review" does not mean that a handicap change will result.
