PHRF

Fleet Captain: Jim Murphy

Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (PHRF) is a handicapping system used for yacht racing that allows different classes of sailboats to be raced against each other.  The system rates yachts by using various measurements that account for the expected speed potential of the yachts competing.
 
AYC hosts a fun PHRF series each Friday night throughout the summer as well as many other races throughout the sailing season.  Each year AYC hosts the Spring Series, one of the earliest events in Long Island Sound and then finishes up the season with the Fall Series.
