Chesapeake Bay Yacht Racing Association high-point standings for PHRF sailors, by far the largest contingent of the Handicap Division, which also includes IMS, MORC and Multihull competitors, have been finalized.Like other high-point standings, the PHRF scores represent an overview of each qualifying sailor's season of racing, with certain minimum requirements, such as the completion of at least five races and membership in CBYRA, PHRF of the Chesapeake and a CBYRA-member yacht club.Like other divisional scoring systems, in PHRF the final score is determined by dividing the actual number of points earned for starting, finishing and beating other starters, by the number of points it would have been possible to earn had a competitor won every race he or she started, plus 30.Bonus points for long-distance races, ranging from five for races of 20 to 49.9 miles, to 16 for races over 200 miles, but not exceeding a total of 30, also are included in the formula, and up to three races, one for every six completed, can be dropped as a worst-race throwout in the final calculation.
