A brief explanation about the team results follows:
Junior and high school teams create a team with 2 boats per team. If a school does not have enough sailors to create a team, then a “ghost” member is added automatically who scores zero points (remember, this is high points scoring).
Schools are encouraged to enter as many teams as they can, even if incomplete, as the Chips 3 scoring system rewards sailors in larger fleets with more points than those competing in smaller fleets, as It is generally accepted that it is harder to be placed in the top of a large fleet than a smaller fleet.
The overall junior or high school team result is calculated by adding the points of a schools best team (two boats in the same class) with the points of that schools’ next best sailor who competed. The “next best sailor” can be from any of the school’s other team(s).
A school’s team or teams are decided by the school and submitted on the entry form.
