The rules for deciding the prize-winners are:

  1. The VISC Club Championship is open to all members who sail in any club race, helms, crews, skippers and mates alike.
  2. Each club event counts towards the Club Championship. Members need to participate in at least two different events.
  3. The points awarded to each competitor are the position of the boat in each event counted.
  4. The Racing Rules of Sailing Appendix A ‘Low Points System’ is used.
  5. Ties are not broken unless a prize is involved.
  6. Prizes are awarded to the Overall winner, the highest placed Lady and the highest placed Junior (under 21). These three prizes are intended to be perpetual, i.e. returned and re-awarded each year.
  7. Other prizes may be awarded in future if members donate them.
