After two years of collecting data, CRF 2022 will include declared mainsail girths and spinnaker widths in rating calculations. Boats declaring mainsail girths greater than the previously assumed defaults (unusually big roach profiles) will see their ratings get slightly faster. Those declaring girths below those defaults will see slightly slower ratings, so it can be […]
A. In most years, the data declarations made for one year will be the same as those for the next year, and that data will auto-load with your renewal application. For 2022, mainsail girths and spinnaker widths are now required to be factored into the rating, these numbers can be obtained from your sailmaker.
A. The CRF formulae and factors are routinely refined annually to reflect biases that were identified via an objective, in-depth analysis of the previous year’s race results. Typically most ratings change only slightly, and those that see a significant change will find that other yachts of the same size and type will have changed by […]
A. The divisions assigned by the CYOA Technical Committee are provided as guidelines to Organizing Authorities; each regatta may, based on their individual traditions or numbers of entries, place competitors in different divisions, so you may not compete against the same yachts in the same class in all events.
A. The formulae and factors used to calculate ratings are routinely refined annually, based on a quantitative analysis of race results from the previous season. As a result of these refinements, ratings often change from one year to the next even when the same input data is declared.
A. The online application/revalidation process for acquiring a CRF certificate is quite straightforward, with pop-up help available for data definitions. Most of the information required is the same from year to year, and it is resident on the site under your online CRF account. You should check all of your declarations to be sure that […]
A. Certificates of all currently registered classic yachts may be viewed by going to the CERTIFICATES CRF Database.
A . A first step should be to check the declared data on which the rating is based. CRF is committed to full transparency, and all valid CRF certificates are available for inspection online. If you still have questions, you can file a rating inquiry. On receipt of your inquiry, the CRF Technical Committee will […]
A. First, while it is possible that an input error has been made, be aware that the formulae and factors used to calculate ratings are routinely refined each year, so ratings often change from one year to the next. For example, beginning in 2020, a Standing Rigging factor effected ratings compared to 2019, as did an […]
A. File an inquiry and see our process here. Your request will be reviewed by CRF, and if there is an error, they will notify you, make the change in the data, and issue you a new certificate with the corrected measurements.
