Re: SHRS scoring system

However, as I understand it at the end of the competition the top boats may not be sailing in the same heat. I believe it is essential to find a system in which for the last race or even last two races the top sailors are sailing against each other in the same heat. This provides an element of spor...

Re: SHRS scoring system

Hi John 2. How will discards and redress be handled for Part B of the event? Think it is up ti Judges: some can give an average on the regatta, some for the day and some just a place assigned. Personally, I would recommend average of qualification or finals depend on where redress is given Regards ...

Re: SHRS scoring system

Hi Roy The proposed SHRS system for major races is great for those at the top of the ranking, less so for those below, and the further down you are the worse things become. Basically, you will lose the opportunity to sail against the best ........ Actually the exact opposite. Except for the grading...

Re: IOM European Championships 2010 => FRA Pierrelatte

There is already a blanket exception for racing under HMS. It is called 70.5(a). I have had discussions on this very matter with a senior ISAF committee member and it was he that offered the opinion that our form of racing requires the result to be known immediately. There are two situations where t...

Re: Help with HMS 2007

I would have to agree with Lester on this one. Alfonso, your and my original understandings are both correct and incorrect. It all depends on the specifics (or lack of specifics) of the Sailing Instructions. We would all agree that this is not a perfect situation, but it is what we currently have. I...

Re: Help with HMS 2007

Hi Alfonso, With all versions of HMS and Stollery before that I have always believed it to be actual place on the water "as if they have finished". Of the remainder, if there are than 4 boats or fewer still racing on the water, immediately record their places on the water in conjunction with the ump...

Alfonso, I am not sure what your query is as you have stated the correct situation in your question. It also appears, from your post, that you believe there may be a link between the points a DSQ in A Heat receives and the number of finishers in a heat. First the DSQ, is a you state Number of ENTRIE...

Hi Alfonso, May be we could have tried to find a solution with ISAF and YNZ.

Hi Barry, I accept your reasons for the post and welcome them. NZRYA is affiliated to YNZ as a Non Commercial Maritime organisation. This fulfils the RSD requirement to be affiliated with the NA (or be the NA) and has allowed YNZ to delegate the authority for Radio Sailing. It also allows NZRYA to o...

Many in our country who are still sailing Radio Yachts in their late 70s and early 80s were comfortable when they retired by world economics have severely eroded that position. Yes, I know ...

Ok Jan,

On second reading I see that you say "In practice......".

So does this then mean that when IOMICA joins ISAF it only needs to comply with those regulations that suits it?

IOMICA presses ahead with joining ISAF in the current timeframe and is subsequently unable negotiate concessions in respect to costs and officials. As a result NCAs in some countries respond that they no longer consider the cost / benefi...
