Points will be awarded as follows. 1st place
= 1point , 2nd place = 2 points etc.
Lowest Points total wins for the day.
Points Ties will be broken for each
event, series and final overall result by counting the number of highest
place finishes - i.e. the number of 1st place finishes, 2nd place
finishes and so on.
In order to encourage skippers to take
crew when they race, and to get new sailors into the sport, we are
implementing a scoring system that penalizes solo skippers. If you sail a
race SOLO, you will get your points multiplied x 1.5.
For example if you sail solo and you
finish 2nd, you will get 2x1.5 = 3 points. Had you sailed with a crew, you
would have received 2 points. This has been introduced at ROUND 3 and does
not affect rounds one or two.
DSQ - If you start a race and are
DSq'd for being over way too early, hitting an obstacle, or other boat and
not doing the mandatory 360, then you will get the (last finisher points +1)
DNF - Its unlikely that we will have
any Did Not Finish (DNF) but in that event, the DNF sailor will get the
(last finisher points +1).
DNS - Sailors that Did not Start, (DNS)
automatically get the (highest points + 1). For instance if
only 6 boats competed in Round 1, all no shows automatically get (6+1)=7 points.
If there were solo skippers that that finished in last position, say 5th,
the last skipper would get 5x1.5=7.5 pts. The DNS skippers would get 7.5 +1
= 8.5 pts
