It depends what your typical winds are. A boat that rated 230 won its division''s season series one year. If you have good sails, a good bottom, and good teamwork and sailing ability, you will do well. Stipulation: if you sail in the afternoon and the wind seems to always die out, then you may get the short end of the stick. Our club divides the fleet into 2 groups with the PHRF divided at 170. Check out yours. I personally like to be at the faster end of the group because we have conditions akin to the above statement a lot.
