Racing 2023 — Notice to Competitors — Spring and Fall Series Scoring Exclusions
Resolving a Conflict Between the NoR and the SIs: Thursday Spring & Fall Series
There is a conflict between the NoR and the SIs with respect to the number of excluded races when scoring.
- NoR 8 SCORING
- Rule 8.2 — A boat’s score shall be the total of her race scores excluding her worst score (and thus applies for two or more races)
- SI 11 SCORING
- Rules 11.2(a and b) has one throw-out for 5, 6 or 7 races and no throw-outs for 1, 2, 3 or 4 races
This conflict is resolved by deleting SI rules 11.2(a and b) so that rule NoR rule 8.2 takes full effect. SI rules 11.1 and 11.3 remain in effect.
Changes to Sailing Instructions: Thursday Spring & Fall Series
As of Thursday Aug 24th
- SI 11.2. is deleted
(a) When fewer than 5 races have been completed, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores. (b) When 5 or more races have been completed, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores excluding her worst score.
