The cut off ratings for PHRF Classes are established regionally and change from year to year, and even within some clubs or events vs regional authority. You need to find the rating for your boat, and then search for the rating cut offs for the races you wish to do.

Ratings vary by region. The New England ratings are:
C+C 30 174
C+C 30-2 144

174 would be class C most places

Thanks, I am reading up on the net.
Not even close to ready to get a team together. But would love to learn the ropes. Maybe by the fall? Who knows. I got a good boat, who know maybe I can find an experianced leader that needs a boat.

Itgo,

Your class will be dependent on the regatta. But with a 170ish don't expect to be above C very often. On the other hand if you were to go to KWRW you would be in start 11. So it really depends.

Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

For boats without an official, measured rating, our club uses this to assign a temporary rating.

Yours would be a class E boat in our race series. As stated, the class you would race in depends on how the sponsoring club splits out the handicaps.

Curt,

You should find that boat a very rewarding race machine. I always felt my C&C 30 Mark I performed a cut above all the other 30 footers with he same rating, allowing us to often do dumb things and still come out up front.

You should give it a try in a cruising class, as soon as you feel comfortable handling the boat in tight quarters, you are likely to find doing surprisingly well...surprisingly easy.

Certified...in several regards...

I went out a few Saturday's back with a guy that has some experiance racing. He pushed my boat just a little and said it was a very fast boat and ask me if I intended to do any local club racing. He saild it would do very nice in a race. If fact, when he gets back form Afgahanistain he said he would love to spend time teaching me and would help me put a team togeter. Sounds like fun to me. He was very impressed with the ascceleration from a ded stop to top speed. Any I am reading up on the stuff. trying to learn all I can. I just love this sailing stuff. this sailnet site has been a great help. Most everybody is helpful.
I wiill spend all summer getting use to the C&C30. How well she does in light air, How close she will pont on her own, Her weather helm and so on. I gues 5 man team? somone up front for the jib and spin work? Someone at the mast? Some to trim the jib/spinaker. someone to trim the main, a driver and a mainsheet trimer?

Re: What class is my PHRF boat? A,B,C

Class breaks are usually determined when the organizer of the event gets an idea of who's coming out to play.

Crew... Ideally for short buoy racing, foredeck, mast, main trimmer, 2 jib/spin trimmers, pit, driver. 4-6 you can get around if everyone knows how to jump in when something needs to be done and depending on how your boat is rigged.

For beer cans, we'll have between 5 and 9 (usually 6 or 7) on a 34' boat. Most on the boat can do any position, so we can get away with being one or two people short. We also do phrf double handed racing which is a blast! 30' is a good length for dbl handing if you have any events in your area.
