MAC Windsurf racing


Introduction


These rules are designed to be used in conjunction with the ISAF Funboard racing rules. These scoring
guidelines have been designed to allow for the awarding of the club champion on an annual basis. The
scoring has been done in such a way that the best sailor for the season should be club champion.
A discard system has been implemented which takes cognisance of the fact that due to our “roll-over”
system not everyone will be able to attend each event. It also caters for a certain amount of misfortune
during the racing season.
All weekend boardsailing events held at MAC over a season will count toward the championship.


Roll-overs
When a scheduled event cannot be run due to unfavourable weather conditions, it can be held over to a
following weekend. We will endeavor to run at least one race per month. A consquence of this is that not all
sailors can attend each event. See discards.
Discards
In order to facillitate the neccesary roll-overs required for running at least one event per month, a new
discard system has been introduced which will allow sailors to miss two complete events out of every six.
There will be a 1 in 3 discard per event and a 1 in 3 discard for the series. What this means is that in each
case the races with the worst scores are discarded.

No of races Points
1 - 2 0
3 - 5 1
6 - 8 2
9 - 11 3

 

Score
Due to the high discard rate there will no longer be a bonus point for first place.

Finising place Points
1 1
2 2
3 3

 

For the MAC club championship the results of all events are tabulated. Any individual missing a race will be
scored equal to the last finisher + 1 for that race. The amount of discards allowed for the whole season will
be equal to the sum of all the races divided by 3. Each individual sailors worst results will be discarded. The
sailor with the lowest score will be deemed club champion.
Where there is a tie in total points overall, the tie shall be broken in favour of:
The sailor who has won the greatest number of events throughout the year.
The sailor with the greatest number of first places, second …
If there is still a tie the championship shall be shared.
Only local sailors are eligible for the club championship.


Speed
Speed events should be separate from the slalom racing. The fastest sailor in a speed event should be
recognised as such.
