We are often asked....How does the analysis work?
A complete list of all classes presently up for review by Central Council can be obtained via our Class Query (filtered to Status = A).
The summary report is an analysis of how each class performed over the past 5 years and cumulatively.
As we all well know, boat performance is largely based on the fleet it is racing in.
In an effort to better understand each of the fleets being analyzed, we now have data (based on the boats in the fleet) on each of the fleets.
These reports are for information purposes used to assess how fleets compare to others on the lake.
The reports are split into Flying Sails (FS) and NFS (NFS) and into Lake Profiles and Fleet Profiles.
Lake Profile for FS & NFS
The lake profile is an overall lake performance report based on the analysis of all boats racing for the last 5 years and cumulatively.
Fleet Profile (FS)
The fleet profile is a performance report based on the analysis of all races and boats within a fleet for the last 5 years and cumulatively.
Fleet Profile (NFS)
Club Profile (FS)
The club profile is a performance report based on the analysis of all races ran by each club for the last 5 years and cumulatively.
Club Profile (NFS)

THE REVIEW PROCESS
In all cases, a significant amount of time and effort is put into the decision process. Many resources are used including:
PHRF Handicap Analysis on Lake Ontario – A PerspectiveBy Steve Corona (author of present Race Analysis Program)
Every year Central Council must review boat classes for various reasons, this generally occurs during the meeting following the Annual General Meeting.
