Notes on scoring:
Aug 17: ITA scores DNF.  Their boat was damaged and did not complete the race within the 5-minute time limit behind NZL.  NZL completed the course for the win.  Race 2 was originally also scheduled for Aug 17, but the wind limits were exceeded before the start and Race 2 was postponed by the Race Committee to Sunday, August 18, pushing Race 4 to Monday, August 19.  
Aug 18: NZL scores DSQ.  The boat lost hydraulics and was unable to control daggerboards and wingsail, requiring that their support boat render outside assistance, which results in a disqualification.  ITA completed the course for the win.  Race 3 was scheduled for Sunday, August 18, but the wind limits were exceeded and Race 3 was moved to Monday along with the rescheduled Race 4.  
Aug 19: ITA scores DNF.  The boat had damage and was unable to continue.  Race 4 scheduled for Monday be moved to Wednesday, and Race 6 originally set for Wednesday will be moved to Friday, August 23.

Notes on scoring:
July 13: ITA officially scores DNF for not finishing within the five-minute time limit behind the winner (RRSAC 35.1).  Unofficially, the finish delta was 5:23.
 
 
July 16: ITA finished in a time of 43:06, which is longer than the Time Limit for Course 1 of 40 minutes, as provided in the Sailing Instructions.  Per the RRSAC Rule 35, the race apparently should be scored properly as Abandoned.  An abandoned race potentially may be re-sailed in some situations.  The scoring above, though, appears to be that officially recorded.  A one-boat race abandoned for exceeding the wind limits would give the starting boat 1 point even though they had not finished, per Rule 101.3, but a one-boat race exceeding the time limit does not normally award a point.
 
 
July 20: SWE was disqualified.  Under Rule 60.5 of the RRSAC, after the start the Umpires may disqualify a yacht that they are satisfied will not finish a race.  There is not a hard time frame for a boat to be scored DSQ for not starting.  Per Regatta Notice 205, issued on July 16, on the day prior to the race each competitor can request that Rule 60.5 be invoked if their opponent does not start, and also request the length of time that should pass after the start before the Rule is applied.
 
 
July 23: ITA officially scores DNF for not finishing within the five-minute time limit behind the winner (RRSAC 35.1).  Unofficially, the finish delta was 7:14.
 
 
July 25: SWE was disqualified on the same basis as July 20 (see above).
 
 
July 30: NZL and SWE both chose not to start.  Under RRSAC Rule 101.4, if neither boat has started by 15 minutes after the starting signal, the race is deemed Abandoned and cannot be re-sailed.
 
 
Aug 1: ITA and SWE both chose not to start (see July 30 explanation, above).
