Registration for 2019 PSA season is now open. Early Registration discount ends on April 30.
For Registration we continue to use Regatta Management. Members can create a log in, edit their profile, boat name, etc and their system ties into the PHRFNE system so it can retrieve the current PHRF certificate handicap for the boat. Once the PHRF boats register, they will be redirected to the PHRFNE site to renew or apply for a certificate. J24’s can apply for a certificate directly at the PHRFNE.org site.
NOTE: For a PHRF boat to be scored, we need a valid 2019 PHRF Certificate on file at PHRFNE at the time of the race. The scoring is not retro-active. Please allow at least 7 days for processing your certificate before it gets into the scoring system. If it is not in the scoring system, repeat: you won’t be scored.
2019 membership options are:
Lasers: The Lasers have the lowest fee for registering a boat, $135. $10 discount for early registration.
One Time Discount for Laser sailors joining PSA for the first time: First year discount of $50 will be applied for Laser skippers joining PSA for the first time!
J24 and PHRF Boats: The fee for a J24 or a PHRF boat is $375 and it includes the cost of a PHRF Certificate. $25 discount for early registration. If you are a new Skipper to PSA, you are eligible for a discounted rate for the first year. NOTE: Skipper’s rate increased for the first time in 10 years to help ensure all expenses are covered.
One Time Discount for New PHRF/J24 Boats/Skippers joining PSA for the first time: PSA continues to offer a discount to boats joining PSA for the first time. The discounted first year fee is $250 plus an additional $25 discount for early registration!
Crew: All crew are requested to help support PSA. If you plan on racing 2 or more nights, please sign up! The fees the skippers pay do not fully cover the expenses for racing. The crew fee is low, $50 a year, less than dinner for two in downtown Portsmouth. $5 discount for US Sailing members. Crew: Make sure you select the boat or boats (J24 and PHRF) you race on.
What do the fees cover?: The fees cover race committee, maintenance of two committee boats, fuel, insurance, marks, anchors and lines for marks, awards, etc, etc and paying our professional PRO Tom Brown to run the races for us.
Last year our number of crew memberships dropped compared to 2017 and 2016. As a result, PSA lost money for the third (3) year in a row and we are forced to increase skipper’s fees (first time in 10 years) to help.
Skippers, we are counting on you to make sure ALL of your crew pay! Thanks on advance!
US Sailing discount: If you are a US Sailing member, you get a $5 discount.
Early registration discount: All memberships are eligible for the early registration discount. Sign up by April 30 and you get the discount and a free PSA t-shirt.
