Mass Bay Pursuit Race Championship

High point scoring for a boat’s highest four events will be used. Each event will be scored as follows: Each boat gets 10 points for starting the race and 1 point for each boat it beats in its class. Boats scored DNF or OCS will receive their starting points only. Boats scored DNS or DNC, will receive no points.

In order to compete for prizes/trophies in the 2013 Pursuit Race Championship, each Skipper/boat must be a current member of Mass Bay Sailing and must have a 2013 PHRF NE Rating. Total points will be accumulated for each boat based upon its finish in each event regardless of class. Boats must enter each regatta individually, complying with the rules and instructions issued by each Organizing Authority.
