Hoping that someone can help with a Sailwave query involving tie breaks please.

Our club uses worst discard to resolve tiebreaks, but I can't see where to set this in Sailwave.

If 2 competitors have nett points of 4 with someone scoring, 2,2,3 (discarding the 3rd) beats someone with a scoreline of 4,3,1) discarding the 4th.

Whichever way I try to set this in Sailwave, it scores the second score line as better.  Which settings do I need to modify please?

Go to setup/user interface and check the two non standard series tie resolution boxes and then go to edit scoring system and series scoring and see if the extra options help. If not you might have an excessively unusual tie resolution system...
I *think* the appendix B 8.8 check box might work for you.

Big smile Jim,  thanks again!  This seems to be the answer to my query.
