Interclub Navigation scoring for the Goodwill Trophy:

The top five boats in each division (Traditional & GPS) from each club, will contribute towards the overall score via a revised method. Vessels will receive their “Score” as in previous years and in addition their “Scoring Order” This will ensure vessels in Traditional and GPS are equally weighted for the combined interclub score.

Simply put, if you place first with the lowest Score you are awarded a 1, if you come seventh you get a 7 as your scoring order. The club with the lowest combined scoring order wins.
