MIR — initialism for Marine Industry Racer rule. A rule applied to PHRF racing in Southern California that establishes the criteria for professional sailor designation, that excludes non-owner, professional sailors from helming, and that limits the number of pros allowed onboard, based on the boat’s length overall. A competitor is considered a professional under the MIR rule if they are paid to race, or employed in some capacity in the marine industry to improve boat speed or crew performance. This is similar to the International Sailing Federation’s (ISAF) international sailor classification system for (Category 1) amateur or (Category 3) professional designations. See also: corinthian.
