How to be Fleet Champion

Annually, the Martin 24x Fleet honors as Martin 24x Fleet Champion that boat with the lowest total points accumulated in its eight best finishes in Martin 24x Fleet regattas.

Specifically:

Any regatta or series attended by Martin 24x Fleet boats may count toward the Fleet Championship.  An event shall be considered a “counter” if at least three Martin 24x Fleet boats start in at least one race of the event. Only “counters” shall be used in calculating Fleet Championship points.

Each Martin 24x Fleet boat which starts at least one race of a “counter” shall be awarded points toward the Fleet Championship equal to that boat’s finishing place in that “counter” and, for that boat, that “counter” shall be considered to be a “scored counter.” In a “scored counter” where the Martin 24x Fleet boats are scored together with non-Martin 24x Fleet boats, points shall be awarded to Martin 24x Fleet boats as if the non-Martin 24x Fleet boats had not existed.

At the end of the racing season, the total Martin 24x Fleet Championship points for each boat shall be calculated by totaling its best (lowest) eight “scored counter” points. Boats with less than eight “scored counters” shall not be considered for the Martin 24x Fleet Championship.

Should two boats end the season with identical point totals, each boat’s “scored counter” points shall be listed in order of lowest to highest, and at the first point where there is a difference the tie shall be broken in favor of the boat with the lower “scored counter” points.

If a tie remains between two or more boats even after comparing ordered “scored counter” points as above, then each boat's "scored counter" points shall again be listed in order of lowest to highest, but, this time, only those points for regattas attended by both(all) tied boats, and, then, at the first point where there is a difference the tie shall be broken in favor of the boat with the lower “scored counter” points.

If a tie remains between two or more boats even after comparing ordered “scored counter” points as above, then whichever boat beat the other(s) in the last “counter” in which all tied boats participated shall be named the Martin 24x Fleet Champion.
