If you wish to present trophies to the best corrected time in a race that has multiple starts you need to be able to score that way. For instance the Newport to Ensenada race has 500 starters in 24 fleets. Forty eight trophies are presented many of which are awarded combined classes.
Best Elapsed (Awarded to the first boat to finish)
Best Corrected (Awarded to the Multihull or Monohull with the lowest corrected time)
First Mexican Boat (Awarded to the Mexican registered boat with the lowest corrected time)
First All Female (Awarded to the all female crew with the lowest corrected time)
First Double Handed (Awarded to the all double handed boat with the lowest corrected time)
First Cruising Boat (Awarded to the crusing boat with the lowest corrected time)
In all cases you are scoring across fleets, Mexican, Female and Double Handed boats can be entered in any of the 24 handicap fleets and start with like rated boats. What is needed is to be able to score in multiple different ways in a single run based upon the trophies.
Double-Handed (Would include all double handed boats from all fleets PHRF-A/B/C/...)
All-Female (Would include all female crewed boats from all fleets PHRF-A/B/C/...)
Mexican (Would include all Mexican registered boats from all fleets PHRF-A/B/C/...)
Multihull (Would include all multihull boats from all fleets PHRF-A/B/C/...)
Potentiall a Mexican multihull boat sailed by two females could five trophies, PHRF-?, Double-Handed, All Female, Mexican, Multihull.
The Trophies table should drive how the scoring is done. You select the criteria for scoring and Sailwave scores all eligible boats.
PHRF-A would include all boats in the PHRF-A fleet
Mexican Trophy would include all Mexican registered boats which may include boats in PHRF-A
Unfourtunately we have not been able to calculate the results using Sailwave.

When I first added starts and the ability to score by any field I had test
in the scoring code to check that all the boats being scored as a group were
in the same start. For example if scoring the whole series as one group
(F9) there could only be one start. If scoring by fleet (for example) the
boats in each fleet would have to be in the same start.
However I took it out because somebody came up with a legitimate (i.e. other
then for 'fun' results) reason (other than flights) why boats in a scored
group could span more than one start. For the life of me I cannot figure
out what that reason is - does anybody know? I want to put back the check
as a warning if possible.
e.g. scoring by fleet and boat A in the multi fleet and boat B in the multi
fleet are in different starts - how can this ever be right in a non-fun
