Scoring for the 2008 Lake Michigan One Design Championship will be as follows:
The low point scoring system will be used for all individual races and for the season totals.
The season Championship will only consider individual race scores from regatta events where four or more S2 9.1 Meter boats attend and compete in that event.
To maintain equality between geographic locations and across all events: if a single regatta event completes more than five races, only the best 5 finishes at that event will be considered in each boat’s total season score. Thus the maximum number of races to be considered in the series scoring will be 25.
The season Championship scoring will count the best 70 percent of those races considered in each boat’s series total. For example: if 25 races are completed, each boat’s best 17 finishes will be scored. If 20 races are completed, each boat’s best 14 finishes will be scored. DNS will be scored as the number of boats competing in the series plus one; for example if 11 boats compete in the series, DNS would score 12 (11 plus 1).
Tie-breakers for the series will be determined using the most-firsts, most-seconds, most-thirds, etc. system.
Trophies will be awarded to top season finishers if more than one regatta event is completed under these rules.
