  1. Made Easy Time on Time By Robert S. Porter Assnt. Chief Handicapper PHRF – Lake Ontario a PHRF Primer

  2. Time on TimeMade Easy So easy, even Jim Teeters can understand it.

  3. Time on Time Goal: To compare and contrast: Time on Time (ToT) and Time on Distance (ToD) Handicapping Made Easy Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  4. Time on Time Process: Handicap “standard” yachts in windward/leeward races of varying wind strengths. Made Easy Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  5. Time on Time Outcome: Identify result differences between ToT and ToD • Closeness of finish places • Distribution of finish places Made Easy Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  6. Time on Distance (ToD) Time on Distance Handicapping Arrives at a yacht’s corrected elapsed time by: Multiplying a yacht’s handicap in seconds per mile by the course length Then subtracting (or adding) the result from (or to) it’s elapsed time. It is independent of : a yacht’s elapsed time. Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  7. Time on Time (ToT) Time on Time Handicapping Arrives at a yacht’s corrected elapsed time by: Multiplying a yacht’s elapsed time (in seconds) around a course By a time correction factor (handicap multiplier). It is independent of : race course length. 12 9 3 6 Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  8. Race Course A one nautical mile course, sailed twice around (two upwind legs/ two downwind legs) 4 miles in length One Mile Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  9. Handicap Yacht’s Elapsed Time = Upwind VMG x 2 km + Downwind VMG x 2 km (in seconds) VMGs provided by US Sailing – Offshore Office Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  10. Handicap Time on Distance Handicap (sec/km) x Course Length (km) subtracted from the Yacht’s Elapsed Time = Corrected Time Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  11. Handicap Time on Time Yacht’s Elapsed Time x a Yacht’s Time Conversion Factor (TCF) = Corrected Time Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  12. Time Conversion Factor Time on Time [A yacht with a “0” handicap is expected to complete a one mile course in 650 seconds] Mean (0) boat’s sec/mi 650.000 650.000 + PHRF TCF = 0 boat’s sec/mi PHRF sec/mi As recommended by US PHRF Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  13. PHRF - LO Time on Time PHRF Lake Ontario has been using ToT scoring for the past 25 years. Currently, PHRF-LO has 1600 yachts racing with current certificates Each year PHRF-LO does a statistical analysis of 90% of all races (club & regattas) – mostly windward/leeward www.PHRF-LO.org Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  14. PHRF - LO Time on Time The PHRF-LO experience with using Time on Time has developed the following ToT formula. 566.431 401.431 + PHRF TCF = Time on Time – a PHRF Primer

  15. PHRF - LO Time on Time [The median yacht in PHRF-LO is handicapped at 165 and the “0” yacht has been proven to complete a 1 km course in ~401 seconds] Mean boat’s (165) sec/km 566.431 401.431 + PHRF TCF = 0 boat’s sec/km PHRF sec/km As used by PHRF-LO Time on Time – a PHRF Primer
