- Fastest time on handicap is awarded 50 pts, than next place 46 pts, the 43pts, 41 pts, 40 pts, 39 pts, and so on all the way down to the last boat. Followed by points for DNF then DNS. eg: If there were 10 boats in a race point allocation would be:
- Points for the series would be calculated on each days racing, so if it is a weekend event there would be points awarded for both days. Points are awarded where you finish on handicap each day, so if you placed 1st on the first day and DNF on the second day you will end up with 83 pts for the weekend if ten boats were racing.
- Boats need to register at the start of the year to compete in the IP series. The cost is $20.00 per entry and all entrys go into a pot to get split up between the first 3 places.
- The NZ marathon has double points up for grabs for the overall places on handicap.
- In the event of a tie at the end of the season overall times will be used to determine the winner.
- The slowest boat in any race will still be awarded more points than DNF / DNS.
- If a boat DNS (or deosnt even turn out) they will be awarded the lowest amount of points but still remain in the series.
- Once entered the racer will remain in the same class for the entire season. If a racer replaces an engine during the season of a lower class capacity they will still be handicapped at the original class entered. If the replacement engine is of a higher class than originally entered the racer will be awarded a DNS for any further races of the season.
