Standings

Scoring Notes

Did Not Start

Boats who don't cross the starting line receive a DNS, or a score equal to the total number of registered boats plus 1.
The current DNS score is 13.

Did Not Finish

Boats who don't finish a race receive a DNF, or the amount of racers who crossed the starting line plus 1.

Throw outs

Each C-scow receives one throw out for both the Saturday and Sunday series. Thus, the worst score for each boat in each series will be discarded when determining the winners for that series as well for the club champion. The Friday series receives no throw outs.

The high point scores refer to the sailor's score without these throw outs. The Judge's High Point Trophy will be awarded to the boat with the best score without throw outs, while the Jane and Will Fisher Trophy shall be awarded to her crew.
