Please note that due to Covid19 the NZIODA National Championships are being held in November 2020 at Worser Bay. As the 2019-20 season was cut short this regatta will substitute the NZIODA North Island Championships in the coming 2020-21 season and may count for 20% of the seasons rankings.
The NZIODA ranking is determined by ordering your NZIODA Ranking score from the lowest to highest with the lowest score receiving a ranking of 1, the next 2 and so on until all sailors have been ranked.
The NZIODA Ranking score is calculated based on your placings in four NZIODA ranked regattas.
The NZIODA ranking score for Travelling Teams are calculated based on:
(a) 40% of your total ranking score, 20% each based on the best two regatta results from
- North Island Championship Regatta
- Auckland Championship Regatta
- Interislander Regatta
For example: if you placed 50th at North Island, 40th at Auckland Champs and 30th at Interislander your best two(2) results would be 40th and 30th. You would “drop” your worst result (50th).
(b) 60% of your total score from the NZIODA Optimist Nationals.
Based on the above examples and if you placed 40th at Nationals then your NZIODA score would be
(40 x 60%) from Nationals + (40 x20%) + (30×20%) ie the best two results from North Island Champs, Auckland Champs and Interislander = 24+8+6 = 38 (Total Score).
This score is then ranked with all other sailor scores to provide the seasons ranking and allow allocation into NZIODA Optimist Sailing Teams.
If two sailors have the same score their place in the National Championship is used to break the tie, If the National Championship is not sailed the last regatta sailed is used.
