Re: 34'Bene vs Columbia 9.6 meter...who's gonna win ??

Well....sounds like I might be screwed but that's ok.....We'll see what happens . I'm not a racer except in the sense that two boats going in the same direction always seems to generate an increased level of activity on deck....hahaha I once passed a 54 ' hunter with my 82 year old cutter merely because the guy sailing the Hunter wasn't pointing his boat near as high as it would point beating & he was wizard of oz frantic as I was overtaking him. Maybe these guys will do something stupid.....I'm in it for the fun.
Thanks guys for all the info though.

PHRF are not perfect and some boats seem to be over rated, others under. Folks that race a lot will often pick a boat that sails better than it's rating to give them an advantage. I like to check it out as it gives some indication as to performance.

But as I said, have fun and remember any time two sailboats are heading in the same direction it is a race. (well at least to one of them it is)
