* West Florida Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (WFPHRF)

 

Having a WFPHRF certificate is a good thing, as it allows you to compete in other racing events in our region with your rating. If you do not have a PHRF Rating from WFPHRF, BCYC Race Committee can provide a PHRF Rating for your participating sailboat.

 

The West Florida Performance Handicap Racing Fleet (WFPHRF) serves the Florida West Coast from Crystal River to Marco Island and all of the Tampa Bay area. The primary objective of WFPHRF is to establish and maintain an equitable system of handicapping boats for the boats owned or chartered by its members.

 

WFPHRF Ratings are performance handicaps, based on the speed potential and performance of a boat. To the greatest extent possible, race results and observations of actual races provide the data used to determine and monitor ratings. Ratings are determined by members who serve voluntarily as Handicappers on the Rating Committee.
