Trophy & Points Races

Trophy or Points races will be events for all fleets i.e Laser, Fast Managerie, GP14 and Slow Menagerie. There will be four points series sailed over a number of days – Spring Points, Summer Points, Autumn Points and Frostbite. Fleet winners, both Scratch and Handicap, will be awarded trophies. Should the same helm come first in both scratch and handicap, only the scratch trophy will be awarded with the handicap trophy going to the helm coming second on handicap.

Trophies awarded on the 6 Trophy Days throughout the season will normally comprise three races with two out of three results counting towards the final positions.

In the case of the same helm coming first in both scratch and handicap on trophy days they will receive only the designated prize. This will be the Handicap Prize for Trophy events 1,3 & 5 and the Scratch Prize for Trophy events 2, 4 & 6 and the Spring, Summer, Autumn and Frostbite series.

The helm coming second on scratch in Trophy events 1, 3 & 5 and the helm coming second on handicap in the other events will receive the non-designated prize.

Prizes will be awarded at the discretion of the committee.
