New format of racing

A recent decision taken by Regatta Committee is changing the format of racing. After some years racing with fleet divisions, the new format of racing is qualifying series followed by final series.

This decision was made to approach the format of racing to the one used in other international events

The new format works as follow:

  • Boats are assigned to different fleets every day, based in their ranking.
  • The first assignment will be done sorting boats by alphabetical order of national letters and the by numerical order of sail number.
  • The qualifying series will take place on the first 3 days of racing, unless 5 races have not been completed by the end of day 3, in which case qualifying series will continue until 5 races have been completed. After this, final races will take place.
