8 SCORING

• Day scoring will be done using the low point system. First place boat gets 1 pt. Second place gets 2 pts. and so on.

• DNF = # of competitors, DSQ or retire = # of competitors + 1.

• The minimum number of races that must be sailed to constitute a race day is 5.

• The maximum number of races to be scored in a race day is 15.

• All race scores will be averaged at the end of the race day. If a competitor does not start a race there will be no score for that

race. For competitors to be scored for the day, they must sail ½ of the races sailed during the race day. Lowest average score wins.

• Scored racing will cease if the fleet participation level falls to less than 50% of the number of boats that have sailed in the race

with the highest number of boats on that day.• Scheduled race days that are cancelled or abandoned will not be made up.

• If an individual does not sail one or more of the race days scored in a series, they will be scored DNS for the days not sailed.

DNS equals the equals the number of competitors scored in a race day plus 2.

• If a competitor serves as the Race Director for a race day, he will receive a score for that day that equals the average of his other

series scores.
