I’m trying to use OOD and the option to average the sum of points for non-DNC. It resolutely assigns number of boats in the series +1. Assigning a fixed value works. Similarly, using RDGa gives same value as OOD. Clearly I am misunderstanding something. Any clues?
Firstly welcome back.
Please advise which version of Sailwave you are using. Also so if you would like to share your file, then I will have a look at it.
Thank you for the file. Unfortunately, it has only one race and no OOD codes. Please could I have a file which includes use of OOD code and also more than one race?
I have looked for results on the club website and found several 2021 results with OOD code being used, which I think have the points calculated correctly.
Look forward to helping sort your problem.
I do note that the
I think I’ve sussed it. I was expecting the average to be the average of the scores in a given race. But what it awards (correctly) is the average of that skipper’s race results over the series. duh! (S)he is effectively awarded a DNC for this race, which when averaged over 1 race, is going to be number of boats in series +1. It all makes sense. I did think SW was more likely to be correct than I was!
Well done on sorting it out.
