Please note that the list of Hi, Low, Avg numbers posted by US Sailing is only a very rough guideline. This is published from the submitted base handicap numbers by PHRF regions across North america. Not all submit every year and in some areas there is little experience with a boat compared to others where there is a large fleet. The "Average" is the Average of the area handicaps. It is not a weighted average and does not take into account that Area A has 40 of the boats and Area B only has one. "Minimum" is the submitted handicap that is the lowest number from all the areas and HIGH is the highest.

US Sailing published a reference guide that lists by boat model all the handicaps from the reported areas as well as the number of boats in that area, the year reported and the experience level with that boat.

Most of what has been stated by previous posters is accurate.

Sorry for the long post. This reminds me that I am overdue submitting numbers to US Sailing
