The Club Championship and Aggregate Score are based on the points scored in Club
races and Manly Combined Clubs (MCC) series races. With club boats sailing in both
Division 2 and Division 3 of the MCC series, the traditional club scoring system cannot
be used. The committee has decided to trial a new system this year based on the
placing of each boat in both series of races.
Each boat sailing in MCC Division 2 and MCC Division 3 will be awarded points for the
placing obtained in their respective division, based on MCC handicaps. Club
handicaps will not be adjusted after MCC races.
All boats will compete in a single division for club races, which will be scored using
club handicaps. Club handicaps will be adjusted after each club race.
All points scored in both series of race will count towards the Aggregate Score trophy,
and the best ten results for each boat will count towards the Club Championship.
Results for the races already sailed this year will be rescored using the new system.
Scoring for all races, both club and MCC, is as follows:
A boat, which finishes first, shall score zero points.
A boat, which finishes last, shall score 100 points.
All other boats which finish correctly shall score points equivalent to the
percentage of boats in their division that beat them.
A boat which starts correctly but does not finish (DNF) shall score 110 points.
A boat which starts correctly but is subsequently disqualified (DSQ) shall
score 120 points.
A boat which does not start (DNS) shall score 130 points.
