Only scores from the Championship series will be counted to determine the club champion. Scores from the elimination series will not be carried over. (This changes RRS Appendix A A 2.)

6.3 If during the elimination series flights are uneven, more than one last place score may be awarded in the larger flight.

6.4 The Race committee may finish boats in the last three positions, as they are, in place.

6.5 The PRO may seed competitors into the championship series.
