I just attended a U.S. Sailing seminar for qualification for national race
officers. Here are some of the things I picked up.
1. Unless changed in the sailing instructions, one race is always thrown
out( excluded) if 2 or more races sailed.
2. The original ISAF instructions on tie breaking had 3 paragraphs. (8.1,
A . Paragraph one calls for ties to be broken based on who had the most
1sts, then 2nds, etc. after the throw out (excluded race)
B. Par 8.2 has been eliminated.
C. Par 8.3 to be used if a tie still exists calls for excluded races
back in and tie broken by who beat who in the last race sailed.
I havent used Sail Wave in a while but I seem to remember check boxes for
each par seperately. I.E. Proper operation could be obtained by checking
box 1 & box 3.

Did you also have the tick box cjecked to include discarded results when
applying 8.1 - ut seems to work here...?
