This is former Tuna guy Pat Broderick - current YRA Chairman - with  
some info.

1)	No, the Tunas will start with the other boats in their PHRF  
range.  But they will be sorted out and scored separately.  There  
just aren't enough starting slots for one-design fleets -- unless  
they're 19 J-105s for instance. And nobody else really wants to start  
with that many J-105s!

2)	The Northern California PHRF ratings for Santanas is based on  
headsail size (234 for 155% genoa jib and 137 for 125% - class  
lappers), but an oversized spinnaker and pole would incur a rating  

3)	Again, the PHRF rating for the genoa is 234 and the class jib is  
237, regardless of whether you fly a class chute or not.

4)	 If you're racing One Design (only against other Tunas) you don't  
need a NC PHRF Cert.  But the Fleet needs to agree as to which number  
is being used.  For the YRA Championship the norm is "white sails"  
using the class lapper (125%).  These are the ODCA race dates and do  
not include the Vallejo/2nd Half Opener/Season Closer weekends.

There is usually also a "spinnaker" championship that's put together  
from Party Circuit races and others when participating boats agree to  
sail boat-for-boat using genoas and class chutes - although on a  
windy day, some will go down to the class lapper for upwind work.

	However, if you're racing in mixed PHRF races you'll need a NC PHRF  
Cert.  Things would be simple if you didn't have the oversized chute  
and pole.  With those, you'll have to apply for special PHRF Cert.   
With a class chute/pole it would be 134 if you sail with the genoa  
and 137 if you sail with the class lapper.

5)	I leave the class dues question up to Tom and the fleet.
