Schooners will be rated under the 1974 Off Soundings Club Rating Rule.  Its basis is the amount of theoretical sail area (lowers) you have room for, not your actual inventory.  Owners are reminded that boats as built always differ from their line drawings.  We recommend you measure the boat, not her plans.  Even if your handicapping data is on file with us, please complete ALL of this form.
