Are all PHRF-LO eligible boats displacement hulls?

Q. Are all PHRF-LO eligible boats displacement hulls ?  (no planning hulls ?)

 

A. We do rate boats that plane off the wind ie: sportboats - eg: Ultimate 20.

However, J22, 24, 29, 30, Kirby 25, Kirby 30, Olson 30, Evelyn 32-2, Shark 24, etc. plane readily in the proper conditions.

Generally the boat must have integral ballast and some characteristics of the racer/cruiser eg Melges 24.

We do not want to rate open dinghies and boats without ballast.
