First place - 1 point

Third place - 3 points
Each place thereafter - add 1 point
8.5. If there is more than one boat correctly entered for the qualifying regatta, but which did not compete, they shall all receive equal last place scores.

12. LIABILITY AND EXCLUSION
12.1. A boat is entirely responsible for its own safety, whether afloat or ashore, and nothing, whether in the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions or anywhere else reduces this responsibility.
12.2. It is for the boat to decide whether it is fit to sail in the conditions which it will find itself. By launching or going afloat, the boat confirms that it is fit for the conditions and that its crew is competent to sail and compete in them.
12.3. The boat is required to hold adequate insurance and in particular to hold insurance against third party claims in the sum of at least 2 million euros.
12.4.Nothing done by the organisers can reduce the responsibility of the boat, nor will it make the organisers responsible for any loss, damage, death or personal injury, however it may have occurred, as a result of the boat taking part in the racing. The organisers encompass everyone helping run the race and the event, and include the organising authority, the race committee, the race officer, patrol boats and beachmasters.
12.5. The provision of patrol boats does not relieve the boat of its responsibilities.
12.6. For the attention of parents of competitors under 18. If the competitor is under 18 the accommodation is the responsibility of the individual competitor; no responsibility can be taken for unaccompanied competitors.
12.7. Under 18's will also need to have filled in the parental consent form at each event.
