Season Class Scoring will be based on individual “Low Point” scoring. The best low point finishes of the twenty (20) Wednesday night finishes of the total twenty-four (24) scheduled from 5 May 2021 through 13 October 2021. This assumes a full race season with no races canceled. See below for throw-out calculations.
Season Overall scoring will be based on individual “High Point” overall scoring of the best high point finishes of the twenty (20) Wednesday night finishes of the total twenty-four (24) scheduled from 5 May 2021 through 13 October 2021. This assumes a full race season with no races canceled. See below for throw-out calculations.
Throw-Outs: The fleet will obtain one (1) throw-out race for every six (6) races scored. For example, if nineteen (19) races are scored, then the fleet will receive three (3) throw-outs which can be applied to the nineteen (19) races scored. If the twenty-fourth (24) race is scored, the fleet will receive a fourth (4th) throw-out.
Wednesday Night Sponsor Series Scoring:
There will be four (4) separate Wednesday Night Sponsor Series. These races will be the first six (6) Wednesday nights followed by the following six (6), the next six (6) and the last six (6) Wednesday nights. Each Sponsor Series will be scored independent of the overall Wednesday Night Racing Series. If six (6) races are scored, each boat will receive one (1) throw-out. If less than six (6) races per series are scored, there shall be no throw-out. The class winners of each Sponsor Series will be boat(s) with the lowest amount of points after the allowable throw-out. *A Boat’s throw-out for series may differ from the boat’s throw for the season.
Blacklock Cup Trophy Scoring:
The Blacklock Cup will be awarded for the Best Overall High Point score for the combined MYC Commodores Cup, MYC Nedeau Cup, GRSC/MYC Commodores Invitational, and MYC Governor’s Cup. There will not be a throw-out available for the Blacklock Cup Scoring.
Spring & Fall Challenge Scoring:
The Spring and Fall Challenge will continue to each be awarded as single events. In addition, they will count towards the Wednesday Night Racing Series and they will count towards the one (1) of two (2) of the Sponsor Series that they will fall in on the race schedule, unless either are abandoned.
The 2021 Nedeau Cup will be awarded to the Overall Winner of the Nedeau Cup Regatta scheduled for 3 July 2021. It is the intent of MYC RC to set the course for this event on Lake Michigan.
Boat of the Year Scoring:
The 2021 Boat of the Year Scoring is yet to be decided by the MYC Race and Regatta Committee members. The final decision for this award will be determined prior to the warning signal of the first race and it will be posted as an Amendment to this NOR.
