Inboard fixed vs. folding prop & ratings

We have a C&C Redwing 30 racing at our club. He has a fixed two blade propellor as well as a folding propellor that he can put on if necessary.

If racing with his fixed propellor is the rating (PHRF) the same as for a folding propellor on the same boat? Is there an adjustment that would allow him to remain competitive while racing with the fixed prop?
