Welcome to the UKWA Home Page Forums Racing National Circuit Series Re: National Circuit Series Scoring


Helms count will count their best three results in the five meeting series. Discards will not count. In the event of a series tie, Appendix A of the Racing Rules of Sailing will be applied (see extract below for convenience).


A8.1 If there is a series score tie between two or more boats, each boat’s race scores shall be
listed in order of best to worst, and at the first point(s) where there is a difference the tie shall be
broken in favour of the boat(s) with the best score(s). No excluded scores shall be used.

A8.2 If a tie remains between two boats, it shall be broken in favour of the boat that scored better
than the other boat in more races. If more than two boats are tied, they shall be ranked in order of
the number of times each boat scored better than another of the tied boats. No race for which a
tied boat’s score has been excluded shall be used.

A8.3 If a tie still remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores
in the last race. Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied boats’ scores in the next-tolast
race and so on until all ties are broken. These scores shall be used even if some of them are
excluded scores.
