Flying Scot Fleet 134 and friends,

At the last Flying Scot fleet meeting in August, 2016, we agreed to the following changes.

1. Races will once again be scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, The first start each day is 11:00 am. One night cost for docking a Scot is $8.89 at Palmetto Bay Marina for YCHHI members. This change will give us two days of racing with one launch. If you choose to use the marina you are responsible for the payment.

2. Races will now be run with a minimum of two Flying Scots to qualify as a race.

3. The Calibogue Cup and Harbor Town Cup are now part of our Fall Series and scores will be used in determining the overall Fall Series outcome. Entrance fees are the responsibility of each boat.

4. Each Fall Series weekend will also be scored as a stand-alone regatta and will have awards. One throw out for every five races completed per weekend. Throw outs will then be recalculated for the series to ensure we all get the best score possible by the rules.

*after throw outs

 

Note the above calculations are based on the YCHHI fleet scoring system which is found in the YCHHI directory

Here is that system

60% of races must be sailed to qualify

65-84% of races must be sailed to get 1throw out

85-94% of races must be sailed to get 2 throw outs

95-100% of races must be sailed get 3 throw outs

 

The final standings for the season will be determined by the lowest figure arrived at by dividing the total points of each boat (after TO) by the number of races raced (after TO)
