Islander 36 Association

PHRF Measurements Form

Since 2014 our motto has been "Safe, Fun, & as Fair As Possible." As we have noted in several places, the boats in our 40 year old Islander fleet have undergone many modifications over the years so we are not (and never really were) a strictly One Design fleet. To the extent we can identify factors that make some boats potentially faster or slower than others, we can seek expert help in adjusting a racer's rating to reflect the differences in the boats -- in effect, to make the rating "as fair as possible."

Our goal is to collect data from as many of the I-36s that we can, and this form is an easy way to collect current data. You might be surprised to learn that there were over 40 I-36s that participated in one or more racing activities! We will try to follow up with phone calls to try to reach those that haven't filled in the form.

Thanks for your cooperation and input!

Here's a link to the results we have gathered so far:
