SCORING

  • One completed race shall constitute the regatta.
  • Low-point scoring will apply with the exception of no throw-outs. This changes RRS A4.

Discipline: All competitors are expected to maintain the highest level of conduct throughout the entire event. When the Protest Committee, from its own observation or a report received from any source believes that a competitor may have committed a breach of a rule, good manners, or sportsmanship, or may have brought the sport into disrepute, it may call a hearing. After a proper hearing the penalty may range from a reprimand to dismissal from the regatta and additional action may be taken under RRS 69.

TROPHIES will be awarded to competitors placing first through 3rd for classes of 7 boats.
