1. 2015 series events
The endurance series will consist of four distance events:
Florida 300 (Islamorada - Cocoa Beach): 4 scored races
Gilligan's Run (Daytona Beach): 1 scored race
Hiram's Haul (Melbourne - Sebastian): 2 scoreed races
Key Largo Steeplechase (Florida Keys): 2 scored races
Each day of each event will be scored separately. A total of nine days will be scored. The best seven of the nine scores will count toward championship. If a team completes all days of each race, the lowest two scores will be dropped. Ties will be decided upon by the standard US Sailing method.
3. team scoring
The distance series will be scored by team. Anyone may form a team. The team boat may change from race to race as long as it is under 22 feet and conforms to event rules. The team sailors may change from race to race. Team names will be taken at event registration. Entry into event automatically enters team into the series.
Points will be awarded for each day of each event, points for first place will be 20 points. Scoring will be based on overall Portsmouth results. Points will be awarded in reverse order based on the number of qualified starters. A score of 0 will be recorded for any series event day not sailed. A score of 1 will be recorded for any series event day started but not finished.
i.e. 15 boats: 1st = 20 pts, 2nd = 19 pts, …. 15th = 5 point
