Scoring

The Low Point System of RRS Appendix A will be used. Eight (8) races are scheduled. More may be sailed at the discretion of the PRO. A minimum of one race must be completed to constitute a regatta. If more than 5 races are completed, a boat’s highest excludable race score will excluded. This changes RRS A2

 

Scoring for the MC Triple Crown series will be as follows:

  • First place finisher in the SER and in the Train Wreck Regattas will be awarded 60 points, second place finisher 59 points, third 58 points, etc.
  • First place finisher in the Mid-Winters Regatta will be awarded 120 points, second place finisher 119 points, third place 118 points, etc.
  • Total score for the series will be the sum of scores in all three regattas.
  • The Sailor with the highest number of points will be awarded the “Triple Crown”
Trophies

  Top Master(s)

  Top Grand Master(s)

  Top Mega Master(s)
  Top Old Salt(s)

After signal flags, VHF radio channel 72 will be the auxiliary means used by the RC to communicate about activity on the race course; e.g., delays, recalls, weather related issues. For recalls, following the display of the Individual Recall flag, the RC will attempt to announce by VHR radio the sail numbers of all boats identified as being OCS. (This changes RRS 29.1). Such announcement is a courtesy and failure by the RC to make the announcement, or of the boats to hear or understand it shall not constitute grounds for redress.

Lodging
