Series Rules and Guidelines

Team racing is prohibited at all events and may be protested and result in a penalty.


* There must be at least 2 sailors in a fleet for that fleet's Qualifier to be scored in the Series.

*A sailor's change of sail numbers from what appears on the event's registration form, without notifying the host club check-in staff and the Race Committee prior to the first race, will result in disqualification.

*Laser sailors shall remain with the rig chosen in their first regatta.

*The skipper in all events must stay the same.  The crew may change.


Optimist, Sunfish, Laser, and C420 sailors must have a score indicating that they started and attempted to finish at least one race in a Quaifier for that Qualifier's score to count in the Series.  If a sailor's score for a Qualifier consists of all DNS or DNC scores, or a combination thereof, that regatta will NOT count in the Series.


Age Rules

*Optmist age rules apply with this exception: Sailors that begin the Series in a fleet shall remain in that fleet regardless of a mid-Series birthday.

*Applicants for all classes (exceot for Sunfish Doubles) may not turn 19 years of age in the year of the event.  Sunfish Doubles, skipper and crew, must be 8 years old in the year of the event and must not turn 14 in the year of the event.


Scoring


Qualifiers: The final standings of each Qualifier will be calculated using the Low-Point Scoring System Appendix A of the racing rules.  There will be NO throw outs


Series: Qualifier results will be combined using the Low-Point Scoring System Appendix A of the Racing Rules to calculate the final Series standings.  The number of Qualifier results combned will be one less than the total number of Qualifiers completed in each fleet.  If a sailor completes all Qualifiers for their fleet, their worst score will be discarded.  (Qualifiers that were cancelled without postponement will not be included.)


Awards


Results of the PGJSA Summer Series 2018 will be announced subsequent to the announcement of the Devon Yacht Club Qualifier results on August 8, 2018.  The top 3 sailors in each fleet will be recognized and presented with the PGJSA Summer Series 2018 trophies.
