Q. I believe the rating on a competitor’s yacht is wrong. How can I confirm if the rating is accurate?
A. For 2019, ratings for all yachts will be different than the previous CRF rating, and in some instances relative to past comparable yachts, ratings may vary a great deal. Additional variables have been used in calculating the CRF MkII, plus all subjective measurements have been eliminated so ratings may not be comparable to past years. It is also possible that an error in data input has been made. File an inquiry CRF handicappers will review, and if there is an error, they will notify the yacht owner of the error and any resulting change in rating. If the measurement in question needs verification from an independent outside source, a measurer will be hired at the expense of the appealing party.
