    Posted: 30 May 13 at 5:40pm
Hi,
I saw a post on the forum suggesting a way to do this. That was posted 2 or so years ago, but it does not work on the Sailwave 2.8.5. Can anyone assist me with how to adjust the race qualification system to get to what I would like use.

I am looking to manage a race series with 26/28 races where the series qualification will be a ‘third +1’ (or rounded up to the next complete number) of the actually races sailed in the series.

The scoring is traditional with 1 for 1st, 2 for 2nd etc. The races sailed in excess of the qualification number can be used to dump earlier poor results.

I have tried to change the result scoring etc. in Sailwave, but it just doesn’t want to know.   Help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I'm on my tablet and so don't have sailwave access but will try to help. The long series scoring, 1pt for 1st, is configured in the series scoring tab. You can then adjust the discard profile as you want by changing the default 1,1,2,2,3,3 etc. To r/3+1. Just right it in the box as shown.

Hi Craiggo,

Thanks for the suggestion. Tried the calculation route, but the programme wouldn't accept it. I think I may have come at it from the wrong tab as I've found with this programme any short circuit approach ends in frustration!

I'll get there in the end, but with so many variables built in for what you don't use, it would be good if someone has done this and made it work. Otherwise it's back to the Excel spreadsheet!

Regards,

Sam.

Are you talking about qualification or discards? Qualification is where you have to have competed in N races to be scored in the series at all, discard is where your worst N results aren't counted in the series score.

For discards you want setup/scoring system/series scoring tab and the
discard profile box. If you want one third of races to count then put in something like ((s/3)*2), but you need to know exactly how many races you want to count because of rounding effects. That formula will give you:

16 discards when 24 races sailed. (8 to count)
16 discards when 25 races sailed.
17 discards when 26 races sailed.
18 discards when 27 races sailed.
18 discards when 28 races sailed.

If you want to juggle that then you will need to put in +1 or -1 in different places to sort out the rounding.

Personally I think series qualification is a complete waste of time, but some clubs seem to think its important. The only effect it has is that people who haven't got to many races don't appear on the results sheet at all rather than appearing at the bottom because they are counting DNC results.
