Sailboat race ratings

Anybody know a good website to find race ratings on sailboats. I have a Bristol 29.9 and would like to know my PHRF number and DPN number.

The PHRF ratings are regional, not national or global. You need to find the one for your area. For instance, here's the link to the Chesapeake Bay PHRF organization:

here is a link to an article that ids her PHRF in a range from 180 to 216, with an avg of 193. it will also depend (to some degree) on your sail config--and as mentioned below some other items.

Here is US Sailings list, altho it does have a high, low and ave numbers, it does put you in the ball park too.

Again, the base is regional, then you take off for smaller sails, fixed vs folding props vs outboards and a few other items. For the bristol, you have CB vs fixed keel, tall vs std mast......
