IOM South West District Series Champion Skipper & Club
The purpose of this competition is to promote inter club sailing between IOM yachts within the MYA South West District.
It is intended that 5 or more rounds be run as a series each MYA calendar year. Where possible each round will take place at a separate South West venue.
The trophies are:
IOM South West District Series Champion Skipper.
IOM South West District Series Champion Club
IOM South West District Winter Series Champion Skipper.
Eligibility to score points in this competition is only open to skippers registered with an MYA South West District club.
All rounds are classed as open and any skipper from a non South West District Club will be removed from the score sheet before championship points are awarded. This will have no effect on the MYA radio League results.
Finishing positions will be calculated on a percentage system. To obtain points a competitor shall start in at least 1 heat at an event.
Competitors points are calculated using the formula below, where S is the number of yachts that start in at least 1 heat, and F is the competitors finishing position.
Points = (S – F) * 100 ÷ S – 1
The number of counting events shall be determined by referring to the number of completed events in that year. Where an event is cancelled and cannot be rescheduled in that year the qualifying events will be reduced accordingly.

IOM SOUTH WEST DISTRICT SERIES CHAMPION CLUB.
This competition is only open to MYA South West District Clubs.
This part of the competition is targeted to encourage the club sailor to gain experience in a competitive environment whilst representing his/her club.
The Champion Club series is structured so that each club has a maximum of 2 scoring members irrespective of the amount of entries that club has in the event on the day.
The top 2 from each club are drawn from the results sheet at the end of the event, highest downwards. If a club fields less than 2 skippers in any event then the missing places score zero. The club points total is an accumulation of their top 2 scoring skippers.
