Also see results from: Bermuda | Gothenburg | Portsmouth | Overall ACWS Standings

Muscat, Oman (Fleet Racing)


Points for Fleet Race Finishes:

Place: 1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th 7th 8th 9th
Saturday (single-weighted) 10 9 8 7 6 5 4 3 2
Sunday (double-weighted) 20 18 16 14 12 10 8 6 4

DNF= Did Not Finish, DNS = Did Not Start, DSQ = Disqualified

For the ACWS: Sunday Races are weighted double points compared to Saturday races. Normally Races 1,2,3, are set for Saturday, and 4,5,6, for Sunday, but if the schedule is modified the point weighting remains determined by the day, not by the race number.

A team that does not finish or does not start a race is to be scored the points corresponding to the number of teams in that regatta.  For example, with six teams, a team that fails to start would be scored as if they had finished 6th, which is 5 points (Saturday) or 10 points (Sunday).

A team that is disqualified in a race is scored the points corresponding to a position one place worse than the number of teams in the regatta.  With six teams, a team marked DSQ would receive 4 points (Saturday) or 8 points (Sunday).

Tiebreaks are decided by the relative finishes of the teams in question in their most recent race, working backwards chronologically until all ties are broken.

References: ACWS scoring is assigned in RRSAC 91.2. Tie break for ACWS regatta results is by RRSAC 91.8.
