Some regions have modified PHRF to 'time on time' in which case corrected times can be longer than elapsed times and the real time spread can widen.. IIRC correctly the time-on-time factor centered around a PHRF of 120secs/mile, with a time-on-time factor of 1.0; boats 'slower' had their ET reduced, but boats faster ended up with CTs longer than ETs... Maybe that's what the OP's group is using and what he's seeing..

It's been a while so it may have changed or I may be mis remembering.....

In any event it's an imperfect system but one that seems to generally work for the majority. There are appeal avenues if you feel your rating, or a competitors, is wrong in either direction.
