pointscore system, has been whittled down mainly to keep it simple and
fairly grade competing Boat owners and Skippers ability to successfully
run full-on racing campaigns through Asian waters over the 2011-12
Season. All classes are included and the pointscore is based
on the overall results at each of the 12 selected events on the 2011-12
new Pointscore System has been devised and launched into
the new season with the following:
1. Everyone entered in any of the 12 regattas/races scores 5 points for
2. Six for winning the class, 4 for 2nd, 3 for 3rd, 2 for 4th and 1 for
5th place overall.
3. “Six best regattas to count” scoring system.
4. Plus a bonus
point for each win within the regatta and a point loss for any DSQ. The
bonus point for each win may encourage boats that may have placed well
at the early regattas to compete the series for additional bonus point(s).
/ Race Line-up for the season
Two more regattas have been added into the 5 star family of events that
make up the AYGP.
The combined Subic to Boracay Race and Boracay Cup in the Philippines,
plus last years cancelled Hong Kong to Vietnam Race is being re-run, as
well as the biannual Rolex China Sea Race is on again in April 2012. For
sailors that want to race regionally, that makes it 12 *****events next
season, 5 on the Eastern Asian seaboard (Hong Kong China, Vietnam, Philippines)
and 5 in South East Asian waters (Singapore, Malaysia, Phuket SW Thailand,
Indonesia) finishing up with the centrally located TOTGR and Koh Samui
in the Gulf of Thailand. Under the “Six best regattas to count”
scoring system these two regattas will be common events for the two regions
as competitors come together for the grand final showdown. We should not
over play the different regions as boat owners are not restricted to regional
events and are free to compete on both circuits and in as many events
they choose to contest.
