My favorite PHRF story:


Some local guy petitioned for a more favorable rating.

The board was puzzled at the request because, if anything, the general consensus was that the class had a rating that was overly generous already.

He presented a couple years worth of race results.

The results showed a lot of 2nd place trophies.

Generally, the boat which beat him was the exact same class of boat, same design, same builder, approx. the same age.


Board: "Request denied."

Owner: "But why? This guy always beats me?"

Board: "Sail better."

And... Carrick Bend.


Probably my favorite.


I only know how to tie it "weaving" style which may not be the most efficient method.

I love how the knot "capsizes" into two bowlines having wild animal sex.
