YC Reluctant to follow US Sailing Rules
My guess is your local club does not want to pay it''s fees either to your regional PHRF organization (you don''t say where) or to US Sailing to register. In our local area, Puget Sound, the individual pays annual dues to PHRF-Northwest to get your rating, irrespective of yacht club membership. The majority of races, and certainly all major ones, are run by clubs affiliated with PHRF-NW and US Sailing. They follow the rules of US Sailing with local changes as agreed upon, if any. Most clubs offer a discount on race entry fees for those entrants who are members of US Sailing.
