PHRF Certs & Handicap Info

Club rules require that all boats participating in mixed fleet racing have a valid PHRF Certificate from PHRF Lake Ontario.

One-design boats (e.g., Sharks, Stars, J-22s) only require a PHRF certificate if they are racing in a mixed fleet.

The PHRF Certificates are granted by PHRF Lake Ontario ( ) and cost $40 per year or part thereof.

NYC collects the $40 fee from the members and submits payment to PHRF Lake Ontario. Renewals are billed in the spring and once payment is received the club handicapper will update the PHRF Certificates to valid status.

Owners of boats that require a PHRF Certificate need to download the PHRF Application Form and fill out the appropriate information.

You can contact the club handicapper by email at to have sails measured, forms filled out, new sails added, certificate corrections made of for general inquiries.
