Championship Points Table
In the event of a tie at the end of the season, the skipper with the greater number of first, second or third place scores will be declared the champion. (No discards will be counted.)
If the tie still exists, the skippers will be ranked in order of their scores in the final event. If the tie remains it will be broken by using the finishes in the next-to-last event and so on until the tie is broken.
There will be no average points awarded for cancelled events.
