NotesEdit

Points are assigned based on the finishing position in each race (1 for first, 2 for second, etc.). The points are totalled from the top 10 results of the 11 races, with lower totals being better. If a sailor was disqualified or did not complete the race, 26 points are assigned for that race (as there were 25 sailors in this competition).

Scoring abbreviations are defined as follows:

  • OCS – On course side of the starting line
  • DSQ – Disqualified
  • DNF – Did Not Finish
  • DNS – Did Not Start
  • RDG – Redress Given
