Does PHRF-LO issue Sail numbers?

Q. My boat does not currently have a sail number. Does PHRF-LO issue one when they issue a certificate?

If not, where can I get one?

 

A. No. PHRF-LO does not issue sail numbers.

Officially, you can apply for one from the Canadian Yachting Association (CYA). There is a fee charged.

The use of hull number as a sail number is also a common practice.
