    1. The competitor’s final ranking for each regatta or series shall constitute their score for that event.
    2. If sailors complete all 5 events, one drop should be allowed. (Note: if a competitor sails in only 3 events, one event score will be scored a DNC).
    3. Tie Breaking, in case of a tie, the skipper competing in the most races that year shall be designated Fleet Champion.
  5. Awards

The top championship finisher in each fleet: GP-14, Laser, and Sunfish, shall be awarded the title of Fleet Champion.
