Board » Sailonline Yacht Club » DNS or DNC?

Viva SRC.

If a boat is registered for a race, starts it and then doesn’t finish in due time, she gets a “DNF” (Did Not Finished).
But, if a boat didn’t even registered for a race, so she couldn’t even start it, why does she get a “DNS” instead of a “DNC” (Did Not Compete)?

Big Hug to all.

A boat must be registered for a race to get any attention at all. If registered, but doesn't cross the start line, she gets DNS. If does cross the start line but not the finish line (having properly turned all marks of the course) then she is DNF. If she 'slept in'on the morning of the race and never registered for that race, but is on the list of possible competitors for a series of races, then she gets a DNC.
You have to be a corporation lawyer to properly understand the Racing Rules of Sailing--and all the interpretations that follow a Protest...!!! (Just kidding about the law degree---well, a bit maybe.)

If it breaks, it's not strong enough--if it doesn't, it's too heavy.
Hi ;)

in addition to what has already been said , I remind you that at the beginning of 2015 the SYC rules have changed , and we needed to assign correct and " fixed in stone " points to those boats that were competing but not SYC members , for the sake of assigning points and therefore series rankings ( in case of SYC registration at later date )

We adopted the DNC code for those boats , to differentiate from DNS.

So , in theory , and I hope also in practice , two boats that do not start but have registered , should be DNS if SYC members at the time , or DNC if not . The non SYC boats remain DNC throughout even if finished . Their position is counted , but they get DNC points.

DNF should be only a SYC member that did not finish the race ( for points purposes ).

Hope clear...Let me know please if there is anything non working this way .

Viva Rod and Piero,

Good afternoon.

Rod, always a sharp eye on the subjects.

Without any reasonable doubt, we are tuned 100% on this one, the DNS - DNC definitions and respective application.

And we didn’t even appeal for a specialist Lawyer to interpret the meaning of both.
Before the Law there is something called “common sense”.
After it, and kindly reminded by our Grande Commodore Piero - there are the SYC rules and definitions.

This one is now for SRC.

If I didn’t registered for the “Lisboa TIMED Race 2016” and the “TransAt TIMED Race 2016 - Boston to Plymouth”, why did I got on both a “DNC”, and for the remaining, also non registered #16 races, I’ve got a DNS?

Probably I’m missing something obvious.

Rod and Piero,
a BIG Hug.
Sail Fair.
Viva Joao ;)

thanks for raising the point re your DNSs and DNCs ....

Within the SRC I still have the responsibility of rankings , that I accurately check after each Championship race . I will look into it and let you know the soonest .

Piero
;))
Joao ;)

further to above ( quick eh ? ) ;)

you are totally correct . The codes fro psail in the two Timed should be DNS , as still in presence of SYC membership .

My best guess is that the anomaly is due to the different approach we have given the server to check for SYC membership at the end of a race , to assign points or DNC . In fleet races this is done at the time each individual boat crosses the finish line , whilst in Timed it is done ( to avoid confusions with multiple runs ) when the race closes down. This is only my guess though .

I will draw Markku's attention on this technical aspect you raised , but IMO it is not priority , as the good news , that you arleady know , are that DNS and DNC attribute the same points , and therefore we still have rankings integrity with present situation.

Ciaoooooooooooooooooooo

Tour de Belle Ile 2018
As you might guess, ‘La Belle Ile en Mer’ to give the island its full name, unlike the Ile de France which lies in the Seine, lies in the sea, in fact in the sea off the Bay of Quiberon on Britany’s south coast, home of France’s ECOLE NATIONALE DE VOILE ET DES SPORTS NAUTIQUES, where many a French champion sailor has learnt his craft. An appropriate venue then for SOLers to test their wind-hounding skills in a 45nm TIMED tour out from the mainland, around the island and home, this year in sporty Beneteau Figaro’s. A popular place though, so mind the water scooters, speedboats and other assorted recreational craft!

Golden Globe Race - Leg 1 to Storm Bay
Welcome, all, to the 2018 Golden Globe Race and Sailonline’s virtual version of this iconic 50th anniversary rerun of 1968’s first ever non-stop single-handed round-the-world race in yachts and with technology in keeping with that historic time.
To reflect the challenge being undertaken by the real racers, as announced previously, SOL invites all who feel so inclined to add their boat name to the post in FORUM declaring you will race by the proverbial "Seat Of The Pants" (SOTP) with no outside assistance from routing software or other external aids, BEFORE THE STARTING GUN IS FIRED.
To simulate the real race which features a 90 minute minimum stopover in Storm Bay, SOL’s online version has been divided into two legs. This first leg then is from Les Sables-d’Olonne to Storm Bay. When the leaders approach Storm Bay, Leg 2 from thence back to Les Sables via Cape Horn, will open. YOU MAY NOT START LEG 2 UNTIL AT LEAST 90 MINUTES AFTER FINISHING LEG 1. The penalty for starting Leg 2 before finishing Leg 1 is NO RANKING. The penalty for starting Leg 2 within 90 minutes of finishing Leg 1 is 5x the time you started too early.
DO NOT START TOO EARLY!
Fair winds and good luck!!
