Scoring System

Sail Nova Scotia Circuit Points will be awarded as follows;

Position Points X Fleet Size Factor = Sail Nova Scotia 420 Circuit Points
Position Points: Scale goes backwards from 20 to 2.
ie. 1st place: 20pts, 2nd place: 19pts…down to 2 pts.
Everyone is awarded a minimum of 2pts.

Fleet Size factor is as follows; 

# of boats                 Factor
1 – 10                         1
11 – 20                       1.25
21 – 30                       1.5
31 – 40                       1.75
41 – 50                       2
51 – 75                       2.5
76 – 100                     3

Example

If in a 26 boat fleet you finish in 4th place you would be awarded 25.5 points
17 pts (position points) x 1.5 (fleet factor) = 25.5 pts
