An odd problem has occurred, due to one of the sections in our Club Racing SI's:
"A boat shall declare the class in which she intends to compete before
the start of each series. Thereafter she may change only upon written
request and subsequent written consent of the Rear Commodore-Sail.
Such a request will only be granted once within a series. Any such
change will not take effect until 24 hours after the written request is
received. All races prior to the change in class will be discarded from all
series results including class champion. A notice of the approved
change of class will be posted on the Sailing Notice Board before 1200
hrs on the day it is to take effect."
(Here, Class = Fleet)
One of the problems this creates is what happens when a boat joins a fleet somewhere in the middle of the series. Anyone who has a DNC in any race prior to the one where this boat joined should have Fleet+1 for _that_race_, not after. So if a Fleet had 9 boats in Races 1-9, and a boat joins the Fleet for R10 - 13, DNC's should be 9+1 = 10 for R1-9, and 10+1 = 11 for R10 - 13.
Unfortunately, there is no easy way that I can find to do this in Sailwave.
Does anyone have any suggestions?
Thanks in advance,
