See your club handicapper to get a PHRF rating.

New rating certificate - $35.  Annual renewals are $30 due by February 01 ($35 thereafter).

Club handicappers will help a skipper complete the rating questionnaire for sending it to the Chief Handicapper for review.  Once approved by the Handicapping Committee, a rating certificate will be mailed to the skipper.  Skippers should have their rating certificate available at every race – keep a copy on board.  The current list of rated boats will be posted here.

Rating Appeals:  Skipper must write a letter to the Chief Rater explaining the reason for a rating appeal (mail letter to the address above).  Chief Rater will meet with club handicappers to discuss and vote on the appeal.

Series Trophies:

FCSA offers three series of PHRF races this year:  SJR Spring Series Trophy, SJR Fall Series Trophy, and Offshore Trophy.  When a rated boat is entered in a club race, noted as a FCSA points race on the schedule, the boat is competing for a club trophy for that race and points toward the yearly trophy for the series.  Trophies are awarded in three classes:  Spinnaker, Non-Spinnaker, Cruising.

All competing boats must have a current PHRF rating from FCSA.

     Offshore Trophy:  xx races; x throw outs – TBA

     St. Johns River Spring Series Trophy:  6 races; 1 throw out.

     St. Johns River Fall Series Trophy:  6 races; 1 throw out.

     WSN - Women’s Series, SJR:  4 races; 0 throw outs.
