Every competitor who takes part in an official race of the Mini Calendar will appear in the annual ranking. To be well placed in this annual ranking, one has to take part in as many races as possible and obtain the best results.

The ranking is reseted at the end of every campaign.

Protos and Production boats

There is a ranking for prototypes and one for production boats

Events concerned

All the official Mini events of category A, B and C.

The ranking of each event, validated by the Classe Mini is taken into account.

Skippers concerned

Any competitor at the start of an official Mini event appears in the annual ranking. If a competitor sails on different boats during the campaign, he can cumulate NM and points. To be classified, competitors must be members of the Classe Mini.

ALLOCATION OF POINTS

Basic principle

For every event, the number of competitors at the start, the number of boats classified in and out of the limit of time is specified.

For a boat classified within the time limit, the number of points is: P = Nb of boats at the start + 1 – ranking.

Example for a race with 40 boats at the start:

John finishes 25th, he then scores P = 40+1-24 = 16 points

Mary finishes 1st, she scores P=40+1-1 = 40 points

Competitors classified out of the time limit scores the number of points of the last who has finished within the time limit – 1

Example for a race with 40 boats at the start, 32 classified and 4 out of the time limit :

The last boat finishing within the time limit is classified 28th, the competitor then scores P = 40+1-28 = 13 points.

Harry finishes out of the time limit, he scores P = 13-1 = 12 points.

When withdrawing or disqualified, competitor scores P = 1 point.

Places of honour bonus

First six competitors of every event will get a place of honour bonus that will be added to their basic points.

Allocation of the bonus points: 1st: 10 points – 2nd: 6 points – 3rd: 4 points – 4th: 3 points – 5th: 2 points – 6th: 1point.

Example for a race with 40 boats at the start:

John finishes 25th, he scores P = 40+1-25 = 16 points

Mary finishes 1st, she scores P = 40+1-1+10 = 50 points

This bonus does not apply to competitors classified out of the time limit, event if they finish among the first six.

Crew coefficient (E):

For a double handed race, each member of the crew scores the number of points corresponding to the ranking of the boat on which they sail, E = 1.

For a single handed race, the number of point is multiplied, E = 1,5

Distance coefficient (D):

Three kinds of races are taken into account, in relation with the number of NM specified in the Mini calendar.

- C level event : D = 1

- B level event : D = 2

- A level event : D = 3

Total calculation

The number of points (C) for every event is calculated as follow: C = P x E x D

Examples:

Double handed race of C level. 30 boats at the start, 24 classified within the time limit. E = 1 and D = 1

John finishes 15th, P = 30+1-15 = 16 points. He scores C = 16 x 1 x 1 = 16 points

Mary finishes 1st, P = 30+1-1+10 = 40 points. She scores C = 40 x 1 x 1 = 40 points

Harry finishes out of the time limit, P = 30 + 1 – 24 – 1 = 6 points. He scores C = 6 x 1 x 1 = 6 points.

Robert withdraws, P = 1 point. He scores C = 1 x 1 x 1 = 1 point.

Double handed race of B level. 40 boats at the start, 32 classified within the time limit. E = 1 and D = 2

John finishes 25th, P = 40 + 1 - 25 = 16 points. He scores C = 16 x 1 x 2 = 32 points

Mary finishes 1st, P = 40 + 1 – 1 + 10 = 50 points. She scores C = 50 x 1 x 2 = 100 points

Harry finishes out of the time limit, P = 40 + 1 - 32 - 1 = 8 points. She scores C = 8 x 1 x 2 = 16 points

Robert withdraws, P = 1 point. He scores C = 1 x 1 x 2 = 2 points.

Single handed race of A level. 50 boats at the start, 45 classified within the time limit. E = 1,5 and D = 3

John finishes 25th, P = 50 + 1 – 25 = 26 points. He scores C = 26 x 1,5 x 3 = 117 points

Mary finishes 1st, P = 50 + 1 – 1 + 10 = 60 points. She scores C = 60 x 1,5 x 3 = 270 points.

Harry finishes out of the time limit, P = 50 + 1 – 45 – 1 = 5 points. He scores C = 5 x 1,5 x 3 = 22,5 points

Robert withdraws, P = 1 point. He scores C = 1 x 1,5 x 3 = 4,5 points.
