(3) Yachts for which a DKC rating has not been issued shall be ineligible to compete in DKC races until a Rating Certificate is filed. Yachts for which a DKC rating has been issued and which fail to file a Rating Certificate with the Race Committee prior to July 1, 2016 will receive a 10% elapsed time penalty in all DKC Wednesday Night Class Races and DKC Regattas, and a 3-place penalty in all DKC Offshore and Nearshore races, until a competed Rating Certificate is filed.

Definitions of Critical Hull, Rig, and Sail Plan Dimensions for Performance Handicapping of Monohull and Multihull Racing & Cruising Sailboats
DESIGN FEATURE
Rig Type Masthead or Fractional sloop, Cutter, Yawl, Ketch, Schooner, or other.
Engine Type Inboard, Saildrive, Outboard, or none.
Prop Installation Exposed shft, in-aperture, outboard (retractable or fixed in well). 
Prop Type  Fixed 2,3, or 4-blade, folding or feathering or in-aperture. 
Keel/Centeroard Type  Full, fin, fin/bulb, wing, daggerboard, drop keel, swing keel keel/centerboard with prefix of "shoal" where descriptively correct. 
Rudder Type  Spade, Skeg, Attached, or Trnsom mount. 
Ballast Type  External or Internal. 
 CONSTRUCTION MATERIAL 
Hull  Fiberglass, cored fiberglass, carbon fiber, steel, aluminum, ferro cement. 
Deck  Not cored, cored, balsa, plywood. 
Keel  Lead, iron, steel, or wood. 
Rudder  Fiberglass, carbon fiber, wood. 
Mast and Boom  Wood, aluminum, or carbon fiber. 
HULL DIMENSIONS
LOA  Length of hull over all less bowsprit, boomin or prod. 
LWL  Length of the water line. 
K Draft Deepest draft of the vessel excluding extensible appendage. 
CB Draft Deepest draft of the vessel with centerboard, drop keel, daggerboard, or swing keel fully extended. 
Beam  Maximum beam of the vesse.
Displ  Displacement measured in pounds ithout crew, water, fuel, and stores on board. 
External Ballast  Weight of ballast mounted outside of the canoe body of hull. 
Internal Ballast  Weight of ballast monted within the canoe body of hull. 
 RIG DIMENSIONS 
Height of the foretriangle measured from deck shear line abeam the mast to the highest point of sail attachment. 
IG  Height of genoa (jib) hoist above the deck - height of the point wher the forestay intersects the front of the mast. 
ISP  Length of the spinnaker hoist measured from the deck sheer line abeam the mast to the highest point of spinnaker attachment. Limited to 100% of I without penalty. 
Distance perpendicular from the foreside of the mast line to the point of intersection of the forestay with the deck. 
JC  Distance perpendicular from the foreside of the mast line to the point of intersection with the outermost point of sail attachment with the bowsprit, boomkin or prod. JC may equal or exceed TPS and SPL and force a handicap adjustment. 
Luff length of the mainsail measured from the boom to the headboard in its highest position. 
Foot length of the mainsail measured from the mast to clew in its most outboard position. 
PY  Luff length of the mizzen (two-masted boats only) measured same as P. 
EY  Foot length of the mizzen (two-masted boats only) measured same as E. 
LP  Length of the perpendicular defined as the distance perpendicular from the luff to the clew of the largest jib or genoa. LP is often expressed as a percentage of J. 
MAINSAIL DIMENSIONS  
HB  Mainsail headboard - the measurement fore and aft at right angles from the luff of the mainsail to the leech of the sail or its extension at the widest point of the headboard. 
MGT  Top mainsail girth - the length of the girth of the mainsail taken at 7/8 of the leech from the clew. 
MGU  Upper mainsail girth - the length of the girth of the mainsail taken at 3/4 of the leech from the clew. 
MGM  Mid mainsail girth - the length of the girth of the mainsail taken at 1/2 of the leech from the clew. 
MGL  Lower mainsail girth - the length of the girth of the mainsail taken at 1/4 of the leech from the clew. 
SYMMETRICAL SPINNAKER DIMENSIONS  
SPL  Spinnaker (or whisker pole) length measured from the centerline of the mast to the outboard end of the pole with the pole in fitting and in a horizontal position athwartship. SPL is often expressed as a percentage of J not to exceed 100%. 
SMW  Spinnaker maximum girth or width measured luff to luff. The measurement may not exceed 180% of SPL. 
SL  Length of spinnaker luff measured along luff tape from head to clew on the largest spinnaker. The measurement may not exceed .95 times the square root of the sum I2 plus J2
ASYMMETRICAL SPINNAKER DIMENSIONS  
ALU  Length of an asymmetric spinnaker luff measured along longest luff tape from head to tack. This measure expressed as a percent must be no less than 100% nor greater than 110% of the square root of the sum IG2 plus J2
ALE  Length of the asymmetric spinnaker leach measured along the shortest tape from head to clew. 
AMG  Asymmetrical spinnaker mid girth measured from mid-point on the luff to mid-point on the leech. 
AF  Length of asymmetric spinnaker foot measured along foot tape from clew to tack. 
TPS  The horizontal distance from the foreside of the mast at its lowest point above the deck or coach roof to the point of attachment at deck level of the foremost tacking point of an asymmetric spinnaker if tacked to the deck at the centerline or to the extreme forward end of any bowsprit or prod in its maximum extended position.
