Entry rules and scoring

Baltic Classic Master Cup 2017

Baltic Classic Masters includes four different classic regattas in Finland and Sweden:

  • ÅFOR Classic, Stockholm – Sandhamn, Sweden, KSSS, the Royal Swedish Yacht Club
  • Finland 100 Year Anniversary Regatta, Turku, Finland, ASS, Airisto Yacht Club
  • Champagne Regatta, Helsinki, Finland, Helsinki Yacht Club, HSS
  • Sandhamnsregattan Classic, Sandhamn, Sweden, KSSS, the Royal Swedish Yacht Club
Classic yachts entering any of these regattas will be part of the Baltic Classic Master Cup 2017.  The cup fee is included in the registration fees.

A classic yacht is a yacht in solid wood or riveted steel built or designed 1970 and earlier.

The yacht that receives most points will be the winner.

A yacht has to participate in a minimum of two regattas in two countries to be included in the final cup results.

The Finnish regattas are raced according to FinLYS and the Swedish according to SRS. A yacht racing outside its home country will be issued a measurment certificate free of charge from the national sail association of the regatta country. 

Two different kinds of points will be rewarded; racing points and regatta points.

Racing points

The number of racing points a yacht will receive is dependent on the number of participating yachts. If there are 30 yachts in a regatta the winner will receive 30 points, the second 29 and so on. The last yacht completing the regatta receives 1 point.

The three best regatta results out of four will be counted in the final results.  If a yacht participates in all four regattas, the racing points from the regatta where the yacht has received the lowest number of points will be discarded.

Regatta points

All yachts that have started in a race will receive 2 regatta points in addition to the racing points. The regatta points are awarded even if the yacht does not complete the race. No discards are done, so if a yacht participates in all four regattas it will receive 8 regatta points. 

If yachts have the same score the one with most racing points will be the considered having the highest score.
