I have an 1983 Morgan 384, I don't race but they tell me my PH RF rating is 160. Others on the board have ratings of 140.

Last week: Broad Reach 18/20 kt (true) winds: Boat speed average for 3 hrs 7.5, Beam Reach winds 12/14kt (true) boat averaged 6.5 for 4 hours. Close haul 55 degrees, wind speed 10/12(true) boat speed 6.2. Those are actual speeds averaged last week.
Normally at 10 kts. is where we start to go easily gets to 5.5 to 6 with out much work. Under 10 it's a crap shoot as to what we will do. I've gone 5.5 at 7kts. 60 degrees off the wind. I've also gone 4.5.

Maybe I'm wrong but that seems awfully fast for a boat with a 160 rating.
