VPRS is a rating system that enables monohull yachts to race fairly against one another.

Proved through testing and extensive use over the last 14 years, VPRS offers yacht clubs a single system which is easy to use and gives accurate ratings across a vast range of yacht types based only upon measurement data.

The data is used to configure a Velocity Prediction Program (VPP) which predicts the boat’s speed for a range of wind speeds and directions. Then it calculates a Time Correction Coefficient (TCC) from these, which is used to correct elapsed times in a race.
