The answer is you need to be racing your boat. Any boat can out sail any other boat on any random day but to do it week after week is different. I have a Catalina 27 and regularly pass other "slower" boats, but that doesn't count. I don't race and realize that if I did I would get my rating handed back to me on a platter... Either you are a better sailor OR you were lucky. The PHRF ratings are well established as a long standing anticipation of a boat’s speed for any given area (PHRFs are different in different areas).
