Q. Are all PHRF-LO eligible boats displacement hulls ? (no planning hulls ?)
A. We do rate boats that plane off the wind ie: sportboats - eg: Ultimate 20.
However, J22, 24, 29, 30, Kirby 25, Kirby 30, Olson 30, Evelyn 32-2, Shark 24, etc. plane readily in the proper conditions.
Generally the boat must have integral ballast and some characteristics of the racer/cruiser eg Melges 24.
We do not want to rate open dinghies and boats without ballast.
