THE SCORING SYSTEM

The rules of the race are quite simple and in complete agreement with the Nautical Club of Greece (NOE).

As racing aficionados might already know, this is a system designed to correct the scoring of racing performance in order to account for different competing yacht types, rigging, sails, etc.

This means that the fastest boats won’t necessarily come first!
