|Competitors Registration & Eligibility
Only USW Members whose membership
is up-to-date at time of registration
for the event will be able to compete
in the NRT Classes at NRT events.
Techno 293 (T293)
Formula Experience (FE)
Please see the Classes page for more information. In classes that are split into separate A-fleet and Sport fleets, only those
competing in the A-fleet receive as Ranking Points. For example, if there is choice
such as Prodigy and Prodigy Sport and those classes are racing separately with
different starts and/or courses then only the A–fleet Prodigy races qualify
for NRT Ranking Points. However, if they were racing together using the same start
and course and Prodigy Sport was only a division of Prodigy then all current USW
members racing in the Prodigy Class, regardless of division would receive Ranking
To receive a score for and event competitors must receive at least one finishing
results. Just being listed on the scoresheet with no finishing result will not
earn that competitor any ranking points.
For each NRT event, the finishing position within the class, regardless of
place within any division, will be calculated by the NRT scorer. Racers will receive
NRT points equal to the number of competitors in their class, minus their finish
place within their class. In addition, they receive 10 bonus points for participation.
A racer that finishes 5th in class that had 30 competitors (each with at least
one finish score), would receive 30-5+10=35 points.
Only the best 5 scores for each
class will count toward that classes'
ranking In the case of ties, the
competitor with the most 1st place
finishes, or if that does not break
the tie then most 2nd place finishes,
and so on, will be the winner. This
scoring method rewards competitors
that attend many events.
Each event result in a USW NRT class will be counted toward one NRT class
score. For example, if a racer competes
in the Prodigy class at one event
and in Formula Windsurfing class
at another event, he/she will have
a ranking score in both Prodigy
and Formula classes but those results
are not combined in any way.
Series Awards may be presented at the final event in the series. All series awards
will be at the discretion of USW, and will not be subject to any review or challenge.
