Point System

Men's and Women's High Point trophies will be awarded according to the point structure below and attached to race schedule.
















































































B boats do not score. Only the highest placing boat from each team scores points. A “B” entry can prevent another team from scoring, but they do not score themselves. If a team has two entries in a race and finish 1st and 3rd, for example, the 1st place boat gets 1st place points, but the 3rd place boat does not get any points. No 3rd place points are awarded in this instance: the 4th place boat does not move up to score the 3rd place points. 


B races are not point races. The 2xB, the 1xB and N4B are not point races (the N8+B and N8+C are exceptions to this rule). But in general, any race that is not explicitly listed on the points scoring system at the bottom of the schedule does not score


Only the top 3 finishers score. Points are not given to 4th and subsequent finishers.



Men's and Women's high points trophies will be awarded according to the point structure attached above.  Over all combined team Point trophies will be awarded to only Southern California League teams according to the point structure above.



Medals will be awarded to first, second, and third place distributed at the conclusion of the regatta.


Side Note:

To help us run our regatta smoothly, it is important that your rowers not only know what event they are racing but also know their event number, lane assignment and whether they are racing as the 'A', 'B' etc. boat.
