PHRF TOT/TOD (Time on time, time on distance) explained

Here's some reading for those who are interested in scoring for the racing fleet. We score races 3 ways:

  1. Around the buoys is time on time.
  2. Distance races with a known distance are time on distance
  3. Lastly, we do pursuit races where the formula is used to determine the time each rated boat should take for the known distance and from that a starting time is determined. The idea is that theoretically all boats should finish at the same time.  Finishing is determined strictly by the order of finish.
