Awards are presented at the annual ECSA Junior Awards Event. 

Each ECSA Junior Program junior regatta is a qualifying event with the exceptions that:

  • Green Fleet
  • Fun Regatta
  • Team Racing

results do not qualify for season scoring.

If a junior regatta is multiple days, each day's overall score will count as a seperate event for ECSA Junior Season Scoring. 

Season Scoring is a high points scoring system. Final season points are the sum of the best four events for a sailor.

Points for each event are calculated as:

Points are rounded to the nearest one hundreth of a point (two decimmal places) in each event. Season scores ties will be broken by the sailor with the highest regatta score. If the tie remains we will repeat for second highest.

Points Awarded = F  +  N  *  F  /  500

Where: 

P = High Score Points (number of boats you finished ahead of +1)

N = Number of boats in fleet

F = Finish percentage (P / N * 100)

----------

Example 1:

Fleet Size: 65          Finish Position: 3rd in fleet

Finish Percent = 63 / 65 * 100 = 97

Points Awarded =  97 + 65 * 97 / 500 = 110

----------

Example 2:

Fleet Size: 45       Finish Position: 2nd in fleet

Finish Percent = 44 / 45 * 100 = 98

Points Awarded =  98 + 45 * 98 / 500 = 107
