How to obtain a PHRF Certificate 

The PHRF Regulations currently require ''that sail dimensions not specifically stated on the certificate conform either to the yacht's class or to limitations that have long been standard in all measurement rules''. As certain sail types are newly being explored and may not be mentioned, or were banned, in earlier measurement rules; the PHRF Committee has made the following change to the PHRF Regulations, effective March 12, 2007. Spinnakers shall not have battens and shall not be attached to the headstay along the length of any luff or leach.
