J/80 Fleet 1 Scoring
Each series will be scored as follows:
The Low Point Scoring System in Appendix A of the Racing Rules of Sailing 2009-2012 will be used.
A minimum of six races shall constitute a series. A maximum of eighteen races per series is scheduled.
The first three races of each night will be scored.
Each boat’s series score will be the total of all its scores, discarding the worst score if more than six races are held in the series. The maximum number of discards allowed in a series will be one. This changes rule A2.
Byes: Each boat will be entitled to receive her average score (after discard) for all races of one regatta (night) in which she was scored DNC. Details will be addressed in the Sailing Instructions.
Boat of the Year
A Fleet 1 boat will be declared Boat of the Year (BOTY) based upon the combined results of the Spring, Summer, and Fall Series. The total points from the three series will be added together to determine the overall winner. A tie will be broken using the criteria from Appendix A of the RRS.
