When fewer than 5 races have been completed, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores. When 5 or more races have been completed, a boat’s series score will be the total of her race scores excluding her worst score. The top 5O5 competitor and the top Canadian finisher will be recognized on respective perpetual trophies.  Prizes will be awarded to the top 3 finishers, the top Canadian team and the top Classic boat (hull numbers lower that 6500, excluding Parker-hulled Lindsays)

Competitors participate in the regatta entirely at their own risk. See Racing Rule of Sailing rule 4, Decision to Race. The organizing authority will not accept any liability for material damage or personal injury or death sustained in conjunction with or prior to, during, or after the regatta.
