BC Circuit Scoring

Of the ten regattas held, a sailor’s best four will count toward the season’s results, which will be awarded at BC Sailing’s Annual Planning Conference. There is no minimum number of events required to be scored on the BC Circuit.

Optimist Fleets

Competitors in the Optimist class will be assigned to fleets as follows based on their age as of December 31 of the current year:

  • Red: Age 13–15
  • Blue: Age 11 or 12
  • White: Age 8–10
  • Green: Age 7, or novice/first year of competition

This differs from the CODA guidelines for Optimist age groups. Optimist Green and White fleets are to have a maximum of 3.5 hours on the water. This is from launching to landing (not just racing time).
