Scoring Updates


I have made some minor changes to the scoring for the Summer, Fall and Season Series.  I am treating each series separately.  For example, in the Summer Series there are 12 Teams.  In the Fall Series there are 8 Teams. For the Season Series there are 8 Teams.  It could be different if there were a Team that raced in the Fall Series but did not not also raced in the Summer Series.

In addition, I have scored a correction such as DSQ as the number of Boats on the water + 1 as opposed to the number of Teams + 1 as I have previously been doing.  I believe that is consistent with rule A9 from the Racing Rules of Sailing as quoted below.

Rule A9 RACE SCORES IN A SERIES LONGER THAN A REGATTA

For a series that is held over a period of time longer than a regatta, a boat that came to the starting area but did not start, did not finish, retired after finishing or was disqualified shall be scored points for the finishing place one more than the number of boats that came to the starting area.

A boat that did not come to the starting area shall be scored points for the finishing place one more than the number of boats entered in the series.
