How does scoring work?

Series Scoring
Scoring will be based on 3 events. If you complete 4 events, you’ll have an opportunity to throw away your worst score. Points are awarded based on race placement. (ie: 1st place- 1 point, 2nd place-2 points, etc. )
The lower your score the better you stand.

Point Standings 
*To be included in series points, you must have competed in all races in the same board class.

 

What is a throw away race?

If you’re ALL IN and register for all 4 races, you’ll have the opportunity for what we are calling a “throw away race”. Meaning, your 3 best races will be used for series scoring. This is a great opportunity for those that participate in all races to utilize your best races and toss out your worst or lowest ranking race.

I've just started racing is this something I can do?

Yes absolutely! Make sure to read through the different race descriptions so you have an idea of what mileage and what kind of course is being offered. All races offer plenty of safety support including local harbormasters, stationed safety boats, volunteer kayaks and more.
