The WYC PHRF fleet consists of two racing fleets with a combined total of 31 sailboats that compete using the Performance Handicap Racing Formula (PHRF) for scoring. PHRF Fleet I (PHRF - I) allows the use of a spinnaker, while PHRF Fleet II (PHRF - II) is a non spinnaker fleet. Racing is open to all un-modified self-righting monohull sailboats that are 17 ft LOA or longer and we welcome new crew members, and in particular potential new boats to the fleet.
Annual Fleet Meeting
The PHRF annual fleet meeting is Thursday, April 13 at 6:00pm. Remember to fill out the handicap form below and pay your $25.00 fleet dues. An email was sent to the PHRF Fleet email list.
Fill out the form completely
Enter all dimensions in decimal feet. This includes your head sail LP.
Fill out 2 forms completely if you intend to sail in both PHRF I & PHRF II.
Declare what fleet will be your default fleet to sail in.
Get your form in as soon as possible with your $25 fleet dues, as it takes time to get everything in and submitted to the scoring chair to be in the system. If you get your form/payment in late, you run the risk of having a handicap of 1 for a while. This also includes your club membership fee. You will not be entered in to the system by the scoring chair until that is paid as well.
If you have any questions or concerns about your handicap, please email the PHRF Ratings Chair, Dan Schertner, directly with them. He will do his best to get back to you quickly with a clear response.

In 1979 Larry Klick had an Ettchell 22 he wanted to race at WYC. That boat and others did not fit the MORC requirements, some of which are self-bailing cock-pit, two 6ft. berths and being measured. Larry did some searching and realized PHRF would be the answer. The beauty of PHRF was that it had an established National Rating system that would be easy to use. Twenty-two joined. Presently there are 29 Members.
There were two fleets that raced with spinnakers and one non-spinnaker. In 2006 the group voted to have a division with spinnakers and non-spinnaker. The extra trophies left from PHRF lll were used for Women's Series, BI, M, and Frostbite.
We are known as a welcoming, competitive, friendly group, with good parties.
