1- Mailing Lists

Date:March 28,1994

Abstract:

Mailing lists, or lists of members and certificate holders, are for the purpose of communication and management of PHRF­LO. Therefore, membership lists, either with or without addresses, will not be distributed in their entirety.

Should a PHRF­LO handicapper require information on boats in a class, only the information included in the class listing, with the addition of the specific club that boat is a member of will be provided.

Should a member PHRF­LO club request information on all certificate holders, a supply of mailing labels will be made available of active certificate holders.

Update: March 98

Commercial organizations wishing to contact PHRF­LO certificate holders will be able to contract the organization to prepare and mail flyers, etc. to a select group of certificate holders for a fee as set out by the organization.

As at March 98: $98.00 / 100 Cdn               $ 75.00 / 100 U.S.

price includes postage, printing cost if applicable are extra.


2. Mainsail Policy

Update:March 1990

Regarding the necessity for mainsail measurements. Mainsails may optionally be measured at any time. Mainsails ​mustbe measured in the absence of a fixed backstay regardless of the status of ​battens.

 Update:May 2002

All new mains are to be measured (this includes all new Certificates on boats not currently in PHRF­LO data base). No new certificate is to be issued without the mainsail measurement. Enacted: May 2002.

Update: November 2002

All mainsails will be measured for boats with No backstay, backstay deflectors and removable backstays.

Update: April 2004

Any NEW sail must have a sail makers Certificate with required information or Handicapper must measure all mainsails.

 Also: All boats with mainsails over 106.1% will be reviewed annually.

Update:April 2015

All (new to a certificate) mainsails must be measured.

3. Fee schedule

Date:March 28, 1994

 Abstract:

 There will be two Fee schedules ­ New Issue and Update

 The New Issue Price will be $25 Canadian, or $20 US. The New Issue price applies to New Application, Renewal and New Boat certificates. Effectively, when a complete certificate is required, the New Issue charge will apply.

 The Update Price will be $5, both Canadian and US. This will be applied to an application that has a change (such as a new sail of different dimensions) and will require the issue of a new certificate. This will also apply for a re­print of a certificate.

 Information changes, such as address updates, will have no charge.

 Handicapper or PHRF­LO initiated changes, such as error or re­issue of an SP, will not require a charge.

Update:January 13,1996

RUSH certificates ­ Due to the increased demand for this kind of service and the resulting time demands put on the administration, a new policy on Rush Certificates was enacted.

It was agreed that: A turn around time for certificates of 1 week is typical and that any faster request would be subject to an addition of $10.00 on top of the regular fee.

Update:January 24,1998

4.  Privacy Policy

 Date: April 4, 2009

 The purpose of PHRF­LO is to equitably handicap boats on Lake Ontario.

 In furtherance of this mission, certificate holder’s names, boat names, yacht club affiliation, boat information, and handicap will be available for public viewing on our web site. This is to enable handicappers and regatta organizers to fairly determine if a handicap is correct and to ensure fair racing on the lake. Certificate holder’s physical address, mailing address, telephone, mobile phone, fax number and email address will not be revealed unless permitted by the individual in question.

 Handicap certificates are made available for viewing on our website by Registered Member Club Handicappers on Lake Ontario who have secure password authentication.

 Personal information supplied to us may be used to keep the provider informed and up to date on the activities of PHRF­LO.

PREDICTION EQUATIONS AND CONVERSIONS FOR PHRF

OCTOBER/85

One of the difficult tasks for handicappers is the assignment of a handicap for a boat with limited or no race data. This occurs with new designs and one offs. It is the intent of this article to provide various methods that have been designed to fill this void. No particular method is endorsed and where possible the known variation (mean difference) between method and actual PHRF­LO SP's will be quoted. It must be remembered that we are not a measurement rule and that we are dependent on the analysis of race data to ensure the accuracy of our handicaps. It still is however, in our best interest to attempt to assign an initial handicap as accurately as we can estimate it in the interest of fair and equitable racing without unduly penalizing new designs.

Present PHRF-­LO handicaps are said to have an average error of 4.5 seconds/nautical mile. Rounding off to 3 seconds/nautical mile interval accounts for l.5 seconds/nautical mile of this. With even the best accuracy in prediction formula we would expect that we could not get better than this value.

It should be remembered when taking information from brochures or manufacturers that builders do not apply a consistent method in specifying boat displacement and the accompanying waterline length.

JIM TEETERS ­ VPP FOR CALCULATING THE NFS­DELTA

In 2010, PHRF­LO contracted US Sailing’s Offshore Office to develop algorithms based on their Velocity Prediction Program and a representative database of Lake Ontario yacht classes.

These new scientific formulae are based on class measurements and result in objective estimates of boat performance. As a result we now have objective deltas (differences) between FS and NFS handicaps for all classes.

The following is based on a GPH (General Purpose Handicap) formula.

NFS­SP = FS­SP + NFS­Delta

GPH Coefficients:

C1= ­24.2535

C2= 33.67219

C3= ­431.522

C4= 92703.04

C5= ­0.00386

 

 Sail Area Calculations:

Amain = 0.5 * P * E *1.225

Agenoa = 0.5 ​*1.55 * J * √ ( ISP^​+ J^​)

Aspin = 1.8 * 5 * JSP * 0.95* √ ( ISP^​+ JSP^​)/6

 Parameters:

SAdn Ratio = (Amain + Aspin) / (Amain + Agenoa)

DLR = 1 * Disp / 2240 / (0.01 * LWL) ^3

SadnDisp = (Amain + Aspin) / (1.12 * Disp/64)^(2/3)

 

Rating Delta:

NFS­Delta = C1 + C2 * SAdn Ratio + C3 * DLR^(­1)+ C4 * DLR^(­2)+ C5 * SadnDisp^2

 

ODR Recognized Classes

RECOGNIZED CLASS ASSOCIATION SPECIFICATIONS

USED FOR ONE DESIGN RATINGS (AKA ODR)

PHRF­-LO allows owners to apply for a handicap certificate that is designed to reflect a standard handicap for the vessel when it conforms to that particular class’s rules. This includes but is not limited to sail size maximums and prop configurations. Handicap adjustments for “Class Configuration” are reflected in the tables below.

Standard Potential (SP) ­“​Total R”= Adjusted Speed Potential (ASP)

(Please refer to the SP List for the current class handicap)

Class Query

Certificates for these boats will reflect the FS handicap as ODR.

The Class stamp must be visible on the sail to apply for this.

New adjustments for April 2017

The following classes are recognized and accepted by PHRF­LO as Class Association One Design Rated classes.
