Club Series Racing – Signing on and off

There have been occasions when sailors, having signed on for a race, decided that they did not wish to race and signed off in the DNS or DNF box on the signing on sheet. As a result they have been awarded more favourable points than they should. Sailors who, having signed on, subsequently decide not to race should cross out their names on the signing on sheet. This will enable them to be recorded correctly as DNC (Did not come to the starting area).

The significance of this in club series racing is in the points awarded.  A boat that comes to the starting area but does not start (DNS) or starts but does not finish (DNF) is awarded points one more than the number of starters in that race.  A boat that is DNC is awarded points one more than the total number of entries in the series (See RRS Appendix A9).
