The majority of races on the Columbia River, as well as offshore, are held using a handicapping system known as PHRF. This well-established system has enabled skippers and crew on different types of boats to compete on a “level” playing field. Each boat is given a handicap based on boat type and performance history. Records are reviewed periodically to verify the handicap fairness. Ratings are not based on formulas of boat parameters and rule interpretations, but on a boat’s potential to win based on its actual performance and speed potential. If you are planning to race, it is important to join PHRF-NW to obtain a rating for your boats. Without a rating certificate, boats are not eligible to participate in PHRF races. Annual membership dues are $60.00. CONTACT: Mike Stainsby - [email protected] - 503-310-0478
