The PMYC Big Boat Series includes all of the Port Madison Yacht Club Sponsored Big Boat races. Each boat must compete in 8 races to qualify for the series. Scores are totaled at the end of the year using the High Point Percentage Scoring system described below. Two-day races (Fal Joslin, Crab Festival, Round Bainbridge) are scored as 2 separate races. One month of Thursday Night Racing is scored as 1 one race.
Note: Volunteers for Race Committee duty receive 10 points added to their worst series single race score + their average finish place scored for their RC duty race day.
THE HIGH-POINT PERCENTAGE SCORING SYSTEM
1. RACES TO COUNT AND MINIMUM REQUIRED
The series will consist of multiple races. To qualify for inclusion in the final series results, a boat shall compete in (i.e. report to the starting area for) at least 8 of the races completed.
2. RACE SCORES
Define ‘N’ to be the number of boats that compete in a particular race. Each boat finishing that race and not thereafter retiring or being disqualified will be scored as follows:
Finishing Place Score:
For each place thereafter, subtract 1 point. Boats that compete in that race, (including any that finish) and thereafter retire or are disqualified, will score 0 points. Boats that do not compete in that race (DNC) will not be scored.
3. SERIES SCORES
The series score for each boat will be a percentage calculated as follows: divide the sum of her race scores by the sum of the points she would have scored if she had placed first in every race in which she competed; multiply the result by 100.
The qualifying boat with the highest series score is the winner. All other qualifying boats are ranked accordingly.
4. TIES AND OTHER RULES
Race ties will be broken using rule A7. Series ties will be broken using rule A8.1. Rules A1, A3, A5, A6, A10 and A11 also apply.
