If you have a cruising boat, you have a PHRF Non-Spinnaker racer or what we’re calling JaM (Jib and Main), because we’re cool.
Without a spinnaker, the boats can run with smaller crews (typically 2-3 people). The PHRF handicap system evens up the racing among all kinds of boats, giving you a chance to out-sail the fleet. And because you can “run what you brung,” it’s an ideal place for new racers to discover racing and sharpen sailing skills.
