Technical Detail of the Websites Race Scoring System:

The scoring system that is used on this website is a bespoke design by the Webmaster (Martin Searle). The scoring system is designed to enforce the whole of Appendix A of the RYA\ISAF rules for scoring of sailing series and races. It is a more advanced version of the scoring systems used by the Sprint 15 association for both series and national competitions (also written by Martin Searle). The main aim is to simplify and speed up the process of working out series and race results and also to allow multiple people to be able to enter the results into the system, since currently just one person does this and as a result has a substantial responsibility. The scoring system has the following major features:

  1. Series can be divided into fleets with each fleet capable of being given a seperate trophy, scoring rules\system (ie normal or personal scoring) and even seperate discard allocation.
  2. Fleets are normally defined as being within a specific PY range for a handicap fleet but can be set to specific classes of boats for class fleet racing Each series can have any number of races and when you enter a new race it is added to the racing timetable.
  3. Race scoring: the race scorer will take the data recorded by the race officer, ie boat class, crew, finish time in hrs,mins and seconds and from that work out automatically what fleet they are in, what their corrected time is and what their position is in the race (adjusted for each new entry made to the race). Race ties can also be handled as can multiple point allocation systems (incl. a high point system of my own design).
  4. Series Scoring: series are scored entirely automatically based on race results using the rules defined for each fleet by the administrator of the system. Any series ties are automatically resolved using the rules from Appendix A8.1 & 2.
  5. Duty Handling and Scoring: The system handles the duties members do and allocates them appropriate race points in the series they have done duties for and have sailed at least one race in.
  6. Trophy Awards: When a series has been completed the administrator can simply click a button on a webform to award the trophy for each fleet to the series leaders. Since a series can end on any race (ie the last races weren't sailed) its not possible to automate this trophy awarding action.
  7. When races and series are scored a news article is posted to the websites news system automatically also the administrator can support reports on both races and series with pictures if they so wish or have been sent material.
  8. Series and Races Result Tables: The system can automatically generate end user results tables easily upon issuing of simple commands in webpages thus it is easy to display these when required.
  9. Statistics System: The statistics system is designed to be a partner system to the scoring system and the stats system combs the race and series results for its stats and automatically updates these when race and duty data is entered.
