    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 SERIES TIES

    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.

    I am awaiting delivery of the sparkling new Hartley Laminates Trophy for the National Circuit Series finale event. And, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Richard and Mark Hartley, all qualifiers (crews who have sailed in three or more events in the series) will get a prestigious trophy to take home. But you have to be there to get it!

    This is in addition to the trophies provided by Bough Beech for the open meeting itself

    So there is a lot to sail for.

    Be there, or be square!

    National Circuit Series sponsored by Hartley Laminates on the 8th and 9th November. The series consisted of five high quality open meetings which tested competitors sailing skills on two estuaries, the Solent, the River Thames, and a reservoir.

    The series started at Blackwater SC in May and continued at Warsash SC in June. The fleet returned to the East Coast to compete at Waldringfield SC in August. The first three events were sailed in blustery conditions, but competitors were faced with a complete contrast in with a real drifter at Upper Thames SC on an otherwise beautiful September weekend. The final event at Bough Beech was sailed in strong winds (see separate report in Yachts and Yachting).

    The National Circuit series was entered by 51 different helms and crews, of whom 12 qualified by competing in three or more open meetings. Winners of the sparkling new Hartley Laminates Trophy were Roger Challis and Mark Johnstone from Waldringfield SC who came from behind to beat Colin May from Parkstone YC when Colin was unable to attend the final event. Gordon Harris from Waldringfield SC was third.
