||To be considered for a SBYA BOTY
award, a boat must compete in at least 4 of all the regattas (not races) scheduled.
column for each race
||The “fraction of boats beaten”
scoring method will be utilized. Each final regatta score will be 0.1 point
plus the fraction of boats beaten. For example, if your final standing in a
regatta is 4th overall in a 10 boat fleet, since you beat 6 of 10 boats, the
fraction of boats beaten = 6/10 = .600. Your total race score = 0.1 + 0.600 =
0.700. A boat which is DNS, OCS, DSQ, DNF, or RET is considered to have
beaten 0 boats and is scored 0.1 for the race.
||The (red) number in this cell
represents the current number of Throwouts.
The “series score” for each boat will be the sum of her race scores
excluding her worst N scores, where N = 20% (rounded up) of the races completed
by that class. For example, if a class sails 14 races for the season, then
each boat will have her worst 3 races (including races in which they were not
entered) thrown out (20% of 14 = 2.8, which rounds up to 3). The qualified
boat with the highest “series score” is the winner, and others are ranked
accordingly. Most throwouts will be
for races not entered (and which therefore have a zero score that is not
displayed). Where a non-zero score is
thrown out, it is indicated with a strikethrough.
||Should two or more
different classes be grouped together at a Regatta, they will be rescored for
SBYA BOTY as if the classes sailed separately. For example, if 4 Cruiser and 5 Pocket
Cruiser boats sailed in the same Regatta Class, they would be split into 4
boat Cruiser class and 5 boat Pocket Cruiser class fleets. Conversely, if the
same class is divided into 2 or more classes by a Regatta and sail the same
course, they will be rescored for SBYA BOTY as if they all sailed in one
