2018 Season Race Position Fraction (ONLY finished races count)

Race position fractions take into account the size of the fleet being sailed in. It rewards those who do well in large fleets and those who sail consistently throughout the season.

The calculation being done is as follows:

  • + 1 point for finishing the race
  • The sailors finishing place is given a number between 1 and 0 (1 is given to first place and 0 last place) the sailor must have finished the race. Say the number of competitors in a fleet in a race is 3 and you score 2nd place your race position fraction would be 0.5 however if you scored 2nd in a 10 boat fleet you would score 0.9.
  • These two numbers are added up and stored in the races record

The program simply sums all the race fractions given for each competitor to come up with the ladder
