Algorithms for the points received at an event

These algorithms can be updated sometime, to improve the ranking system

PointPosition: Point received according to the final position at the event.

EntryTotal: Number of entries at this event.

MNAtotal: Number of different MNA at this event.

ClubTotal: Number of different club at this event.

GradeFactor: Multiplicator factor according to the grading of the event.

RankBonus: Number of MNA/team/sailor (depending on the ranking list) behind in the event's final rank, but ahead in the ranking list.

GradeLimit: Value defined below depending on the grade: "Value for the grade X top sailor/club/MNA".

TopRacer: According to the grading of the event, it is the number of sailor/team/MNA above the "GradeLimit" to increase the EventFactor (according to the ranking list just before the event).

For MNA ranking list

Entry_Factor: If MNAtotal < 10, the value is : MNAtotal/10. If MNAtotal >= 20, the value is : 1.1 . If MNAtotal >= 30, the value is : 1.2 . Otherwise, the value is 1.

Event_Factor calculation: if TopRacer >= (EntryTotal/2) then Event_Factor = GradeFactor + [ 0.008 * ( TopRacer - EntryTotal / 2 ) ] else Event_Factor = GradeFactor

Point_received= [ ( PointPosition * Entry_Factor) + RankBonus ] * Event_Factor

For Club/Team ranking list

Entry_Factor: If ClubTotal < 10, the value is : ClubTotal/10. If ClubTotal >= 20, the value is : 1.1 . If ClubTotal >= 30, the value is : 1.2 . Otherwise, the value is 1.

Event_Factor calculation: if TopRacer >= (EntryTotal/2) then Event_Factor = GradeFactor + [ 0.008 * ( TopRacer - EntryTotal / 2 ) ] else Event_Factor = GradeFactor

Point_received= [ ( PointPosition * Entry_Factor) + RankBonus ] * Event_Factor

For Sailor ranking list

Entry_Factor: If EntryTotal < 10, the value is : EntryTotal/10. If EntryTotal >= 20, the value is : 1.1 . If EntryTotal >= 30, the value is : 1.2 . Otherwise, the value is 1.

Event_Factor calculation: if TopRacer >= (EntryTotal/2) then Event_Factor = GradeFactor + [ 0.008 * ( TopRacer - EntryTotal / 2 ) ] else Event_Factor = GradeFactor

Point_received= [ ( PointPosition * Entry_Factor) + RankBonus ] * Event_Factor
