Overall Club Champion
To be eligible for the Overall Club Champion, deeded the Matulot Trophy, a boat must be registered for racing in the BHYC Club Racing Series. Points will be awarded to first, second and third place boats in any events that are:
• Held between the first Club Series race and the Diehards Regatta, inclusive,
• Organized and run under the sole authority of the BHYC Sail Committee, and
• Have at least five eligible boats competing per division.
At a minimum, there must be separate divisions for PHRF Flying Sails (FS) and PHRF Non-flying Sails (NFS). Organizers are encouraged to include additional divisions (including a one-design Shark division) whenever the number of participants will allow for 5 boats in each division. Participants in PHRF fleets must have a valid PHRF-LO certificate.
The points awarded for different series/events are shown below in Table 1. The trophy is awarded to the boat with the most points. In the case of a tie, the trophy will be shared and engraved with both names.
|Event||Points for 1st place||Points for 2nd place||Points for 3rd place|
|Club Racing Series||15||10||5|
|Club Racing Overall||15||10||5|
|Bronte Rocks (BHYC boats only)||5||3||1|
