Race Series Scoring Rules
The Appendix A (A4.1) Low Point System of the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020 will be used unless amended as below.

  • Points for 1st place = 1pt; 2nd place = 2pts etc
  • Points for retiring or disqualification from a race (RTD,DNS,OCS) = number of starters in race + 1
  • Points for not starting a race (DNC) = the number of starters in the series
  • The number of qualifying races for a series is 50% of the number of races sailed in that series
  • If a helm has not sailed the required number of qualifying races, DNC points (see above) will be scored for each race needed to reach the number of qualifying races.
  • Series points are assigned to the helm, not the boat
  • For any races that a series helm is on duty (safety or OD), the helm’s average points for the series (not including DNC points) will be allocated for those races. If racing is abandoned, average points will not be awarded.
  • Only helms who have entered at least one race will be eligible for the series ie a series place is not given for Average Points only.
  • The Helm of the Year trophy is awarded to the helm with the most race wins in the season.
