Is the use of a whisker pole class legal? I think not. Nevertheless, I'm pretty sure its use is legal in a PHRF event, but would require a J109 using a whisker pole to race using its standard PHRF rating instead of its OD class rating. For example, in Marina Del Rey, CA a j109 has a standard PHRF buoy rating of 63 but a OD rating of 75. If a whisker pole is not permitted in OD events, can a j109 using a whisker pole in a PHRF event still use its OD rating of 75?
