ASMBYC High Point Series
Condition & Rules 2018 – 2020

Description:
The annual High Point Series consists of 12 races, six races each from each of our two harbors, King Harbor
and Marina del Rey. The individual races are hosted by member Yacht Clubs of the Association. All Notices of Race, Sailing Instructions and fees are issued and specified by the host clubs. The scheduled High Point Series events
consist of PHRF, One-design, ORCA and Cruiser classes. When a High Point event includes multiple races, the High Point race is the second race of the day.

Eligibility:
An entrant in the High Point Series is an individual who is named in the race results of the designated High
Point Race, and who is a member in good standing of an ASMBYC club. Their boat must participate in six (6) races
to qualify. Individuals who are not affiliated with an ASMBYC club are welcome to participate and may be scored, however they are not eligible for awards.

Scoring:
The entrant’s score in each High Point event is computed depending on his/her position and on the number of
boats sailing in his/her class. The score is determined by the following formula: ((number of boats surpassed
+ 1)/ number of boats entered in the class) X 100 and rounded to the nearest integer. A score of DNF, OCS,
DSQ, or RAF will establish participation in an event. An abandoned race is not scored.

A bonus is given to each entrant racing in an event outside his/her home harbor. The entrant’s score for that
event is increased 30% as calculated above. A boat’s home harbor is determined by its associated yacht
club. Boats that don’t meet this requirement, will have it assigned by The Hight Point Chair.

Boat must participate in six (6) races to qualify for the series. The total of an entrant’s best six scores will be combined for an overall score and the basis for receiving an award.

Awards:
Two perpetual trophies are to be properly engraved and awarded at the ASMBYC Annual Installation Dinner,
usually held in January of the year following the series.

“The High Point Championship Trophy”: awarded to the entrant having the highest overall score.

“The Home Harbor Trophy”: is awarded to the entrant from the other harbor than that of the High Point Championship Trophy recipient, and has the highest overall score among those from the other harbor.

Note: The above Conditions and Rules are always available here on the ASMBYC website, along with the current scores. The designated races for this series are listed in the ASMBYC calendar, and here on the website. Any updates/changes in qualifying races due to conflict or cancellation shall be posted on the ASMBYC website.


How The High Point is Scored

Scoring:
The entrant’s score in each High Point event will be computed depending on his/her position in the scoring and on
the number of boats sailing in his/her class.

The score is determined by the following formula:
((number of boats beaten + 1)/ number of boats entered in her class) X 100 and rounded to the nearest integer. A score of DNF, OCS, DSQ, or RAF will establish participation in an event. When an entrant is sailing in a race at other than the entrant’s home harbor, his/her score for that race will be increased to 130% of the score calculated above. This increase applies only to boats berthed in a harbor located within Santa Monica Bay.

Final Score:
Boat must participate in six (6) races to qualify for the series.
The total of an entrant’s best six scores will be the basis for receiving an award.

The ASMBYC High Point Series awards those skippers who sail often. At the beginning of the year ASMBYC selects six races from each harbor and designates them in the calendar as High Point events. No Highpoint Series entry is required. Boat must participate in six (6) races to qualify for the series.The best six races are scored. Entrants from Marina del Rey receive a 30% bonus when they sail in an event in King Harbor, and entrants from King Harbor receive a 30% bonus when they sail in an event in Marina del Rey. Entrants must be a member in good standing of an ASMBYC yacht club.

A boat is given points based on the results of their race using the following formula: {[(number of boats beaten + 1)/number of boats entered in the class] X 100}, rounded to the nearest whole number. If a boat is from a yacht club of a harbor other than the organizing club, the boat shall receive a bonus of +30%. For scoring purposes, a score of DNF, OCS, DSQ or RAF will establish participation in an event. A race abandoned is not scored. Six races must be completed to qualify for the series.

Example: 30 boats are entered in a California YC event, 6 boats in Class A. A boat from King Harbor YC finishing second in that class would be scored as follows:

{[(4+1)/6](100)} = 83.333 rounded = 83

Harbor Bonus: (83)(1.30) = 107
