Sail-World.com : HPR National Championship at Rolex Big Boat Series
HPR National Championship at Rolex Big Boat Series


Interest is building for the 2013 HPR National Championship being held as part of the 2013 Rolex Big Boat Series, hosted by St Francis YC. Four days of inshore racing will be held over September 26-29th in San Francisco Bay, one of the world’s great sailing venues. Winner of the HPR Class will not only win the National title, but a Rolex timepiece as part of the main event.

Entries to the HPR class may be any offshore-capable, high-performance monohull that conforms to the HPR rule, available at www.hprsailing.org. These include modern high-speed designs such as Carkeek 40’s, Botin 40’s, MC 38’s and Farr 400’s, as well as older high-performance boats, such as last year’s HPR Class winner, Peter Krueger’s J/125 Double Trouble. Other older HPR-compatible high-performance boats that have expressed interest include 1D35’s, Farr 36 OD’s, and Santa Cruz 37’s.

HPR ratings are single-number, time-on-time time correction factors, and older designs get rating credits for their age and pre-HPR typeform features. The HPR V4f1 calculator will be used to determine ratings, and is available here.

HPR Class entries can get more information on the event and entry forms at Rolex Big Boat Series, and US Sailing must have measurement data submitted for HPR ratings by September 18.

Boats with fully-measured ORR and ORCi certificates can get an HPR certificate with only a few additional measurements, and boats with IRC Endorsed certificates will need a few more measurements for HPR. Boats with only PHRF certificates should contact Dan Nowlan at DanNowlan@ussailing.org for measurement options.

For more information on obtaining an HPR rating, consult the new HPR Measurement Guide available here.

For more information about HPR, visit HPR Sailing, or contact HPR communications manager Dobbs Davis at dobbs@hprsailing.org.
