                                          will be in effect.

                                   15.2   If applicable, the point scores shall be determined as follows

                                   15.2.1 Club Championship: Lowest points on scratch in each fleet in
                                   the Club championship races, worst race discarded

                                   15.2.2 Spring Point score: Lowest points on handicap in all fleets
                                   before Christmas with the worst race discarded.

                                   15.2.3 Summer Point score: Lowest points on handicap in all fleets
                                   after Christmas with the worst race discarded.

                                   15.2.4 Fastest Time Point score: Lowest points on scratch in all fleets
                                   over the season with the three worst races discarded.

                                   15.2.5 Sprints: Lowest points on handicap and scratch with the worst
                                   combined day’s result discarded.

                                   15.4   Boats participating in association events of the same class may
                                          be awarded average points at the discretion of the race

                                          15.4.1 Average points will be calculated from a boats average
                                                 from handicap results to date. This score will be used
                                                 for both the scratch and handicap pointscore.

                                          15.4.2 Application of average points must be made in writing
                                                 prior to the relevant event.

                                   15.5   For the Spring, Summer, Fastest Time and Season pointscore
                                          in sprint races, the sum of the times will be used to calculate
                                          overall pointscore. If a boat is DNF in a sprint race, they will
                                          receive the time of the last boat in their fleet + 5 minutes.
