I think we should scrap the participation points all together.
We have already paid a membership to do this..:)
And we also get points in every race we finish.
It would also be possible for new members to rech the top in reasonable time. It would be a more fair system.
Ranking systems in sailing has been up to discussion many times. It almost always falls back on the standard lowscoring system described in ISAF racing rules. Why not use it? Well tested and described (end of discussion?) and as I see it it will apply very well to SYC ranking system.
For example: Use latest 15 races to conform a serie. Winner gets 1 point, 2nd place 2 points aso. You don't count 1 of 5 races.

What I like with this system compared to current one:
- Sailing IRL is not about winning 5 races of 30. It's about not making big mistakes.
- A 5th place is worth the same for every race. It's not my fault the others didn't show up.
- You have to participate, but if you miss a race you can still win.
- Same system as IRL

I certainly like your input Wiz,

We are not looking at the ranking system at the moment, but when we do a review of it again we will have a good look at the system.

Does the ranking system works?
If I count my points as the ranking list I get 6024 point. The ranking shows 6180...
Hometown: Trosa, Sweden
Boat: Albin Express, SWE 410
Something is a bit odd with the ranking, we'll look into it ASAP...
Well, I couldn't drop it...
Here's an example of how it works:


- Latest 15 races (5 discounted)
- I have not included the "Sailplanner-race" and the "Experimental-Venerrace".
- All sailors are included now, should be only SYC-members ofcourse.
- It says "DNS" (did not start), but can also mean "DNF" (did not finish).
- I made a quick rip from sailonline.org result pages so there may be errors (a webservice would be neat!)
- And, no, I didn't put in any effort to make it look good... =)

Sinbad Braves the Bay of Bengal 2023
“Sinbad, you sorry sailor, why have you not told me of this great sea, this giant bay, stretching hundreds of thousands of qasbah east of Al-Hindi to fabled lands where tea and rice and rubber is abundant?” and Sinbad replied “Ahh, umm, shall I go have a look. May I take the Judel Vrolijk 62 again, it’s going to be a long voyage, perhaps a million and one half qasbah (c 3000nm)? I’ll start in Chittagong and follow the coast to the southern tip of the Hindus’ land, round Serendip, head east into the vastness of the seas, and if I’m lucky (no pun intended, oh Mighty One) I shall find land again and then head north and see where I end up”. “Fair winds, Sinbad”, said the Sultan.

Maryland to Alaska 2023
Welcome to this September edition of 2023 OCCH. This route was first sailed in 2020. At the time it was inspired by Matt Rutherford's single-handed Red Dot Expedition around the Americas in 2012, SOLer Renegade proposing a half-around from Maryland over the North into the Pacific and back through the Panama Canal, in 5 legs, 5 years later. Leg 2 across the North West Passage proved to be particularly challenging and so to create a proper Ocean Race, SRC combined Leg 2 with Leg 1 to give you a race of at least 4000nm from Maryland to Alaska, now to be sailed in our magnificent Archer 78.
