TCC runs two Championships being Offshore and Club.   Details of these are noted in this document.

In order to compete in the Offshore Series, Skippers confirm understanding of the Club Racing Standing Orders and agree to be bound by them.

The Offshore Series Champion will be determined on the Low Point System of their best SIX results in the Qualifying Events.

Should no boat record the required number of results the Race Committee may at its sole discretion reduce the number of results needed.

If there is a series-score tie between two or more boats, each boat’s race scores shall be listed in order of best to worst and at the first point(s) where there is a difference the tie shall be broken in favour of the boat(s) with the best score(s).   No excluded scores shall be used.

If a tie remains between two or more boats, they shall be ranked in order of their scores in the last race.   Any remaining ties shall be broken by using the tied boats’ scores in the next to last race and so on until all the ties are broken.   These scores shall be used even if some of them are excluded scores.
