    Manhasset Fall Series

    CI Hack, dont know the answer but I suspect from your question that you dont understand the rating system. It is a disadvantage to them to have the lower rating on wed nights. The higher the number the more time faster boats would have to give them and the less time they would have to give slower boats. I think 84 may be the standard 36.7 configuration for one design and allows the standard class #1 headsail. When sailing some phrf they can get a credit for smaller headsails or weight, I think. Actually it had to do with sail size. You would be correct if they sailed at a lower rating with the same sail. I hardly think that is the case. To be perfectly clear I a almost positive that 84 or 87 is with a 155% headsail and 90 is with a 145%. YRA LIS members can view certificates and the copy that was given to me shows a distance rating of 87 and L/W of 90 with +3 for 145% and +3 for max weight of 1500 pounds. Ok, so It sounds like you are saying they are doing it right.Sailing with a larger 155 and a lower rating (84) and when using the higher rating they sail with a 145. it also sound like they are getting a credit +3 for weight at some regattas and the distance rating of 87. except that you cannot switch ratings at will!

    It's not just EBYRA, they had a rating of 84 in the YRA of LIS Championships as well.I'm sure it is just a typo, the 90 key looks just like the 84 key. Breakaway is rated 90 for Manhasset Fall Series, 84 for AYC Fall Series and 87 for the Fall Classic. WTF? The fall classic used distance ratings and AYC let the 36.7s race level at 84 since they couldn't get enough boats on the line for a one-design start. Begging everyone's pardon, AYC, race committees, best friends, asshole buddies, whatever, the certificate is the certificate and the club or RC cannot "let" any boat race not in accordance with it's certificate under PHRF.

    How is it that EBYRA let Breakaway race wed nights at 84? without weight credit that would put them at 87 with the declared 145% on their certificate. Seems like they probably used a larger headsail on many occasions?
