Some classes use TLE (Time Limit Expired) as a scoring abbreviations for boats that are still racing after the finish window expires. The Sunfish class uses TLE and I had a couple interesting scoring situations which might be of interest to you. Below are the 2018 Sunfish Worlds TLE instructions:

15.2 Boats still racing 15 minutes after the first boat sails the course and finishes, and not thereafter retiring, being penalized or given redress, will be scored Time Limit Expired (TLE, see Scoring) without a hearing. This changes RRS 35, A4, A5, and A11.

17.6 A boat scored TLE will be scored points equal to the number of boats finishing within the time limit plus two points, but not worse than DNF. This changes RRS 35, A4, A5 and A11.

The important thing is to make sure that the Sailwave scoring codes properties are configured correctly. It turns out that both the UFD and BFD
scoring codes don’t have the correct property set. It’s easy to change the property by checking the checkbox that “This code implies that the boat finished the race” for both BFD and UFD scoring codes. The TLE points will be incorrect if you don’t do this and you have BFD/UFD results.

In the first race of the event we had two TLE scores. Also, in that race we had two RDG scores for rendering assistance. The jury decided that the one boat would have finished outside the finish window time limit even if she hadn’t rendered assistance and awarded her RDG points equivalent to the TLE points. The other boat would have finished within the time limit and received RDG points based on a mark rounding position.

Because the RDG points affected the TLE points, I needed two RDG scoring codes; one with the boat finished property and one without. I used RDGf and RDGnf.

Interesting and I fully understand why you need the two RDG codes but I just checked Sailwave and both UFD and BFD are configured to be that they did not finish the race, which I would consider to be correct - Do you think I’m wrong?

OCS, BFD and UFD boats are considered finished most of the time. The test is if they meet the definition of finish. Exceptions would be with keelboats if the RC radios the boats and informs them of their UFD/BFD score and the boats stop racing. Same for dinghy fleets when OCS/BFD/UFD boats are notified at the windward mark and pull out of the race. A RET score could be considered as finished if the boat retired after finishing. This retirement is different from an Appendix P2.3 retirement.

The good thing is that Sailwave has the functionality to make it all work.

Yes - Events I tend to score are either Dingy or Windsurfing and in these, a BFD or UFD boats/boards would not continue the race and would not finish the race.

As you said the good thing is Sailwave allows you to configure it however you wish it to be. The only thing that concerned me was the sentence you wrote " It turns out that both the UFD and BFD scoring codes don’t have the correct property set. " which made me think I had programmed the default incorrectly so I thought while its fresh in my mind I would update the source but I think the default should be left as it currently is.

I’ve just purchased Clarion 11 and have compiled Sailwave with this and we now have a Touch enabled version of Sailwave so if you have a touch screen you can scroll it around using touch. Needs some testing before I release it fully.

did not start correctly and therefore cannot finish correctly!
However, finish definition makes no mention of having started
correctly!

From RRS Definitions:

Start * A boat
starts when, having been entirely on the
pre-start side of the starting line at or
after her starting signal, and having
complied with rule 30.1 if it applies, any
part of her hull, crew or equipment
crosses the starting line in the direction
of the first mark.*

How would a boat/board in your events know that they were OCS, BFD or UFD? I guess that 99% of the OCS, BFD or UFD scored boats wouldn’t know their score until after they finished. Even at the SWC events boats that are OCS/UFD/BFD are not notified at the windward mark. The only time a BFD boat knows that they were BFD if there was a general recall during a black flag start and she was listed on the RC board prior to the restart. (RRS 30.4)

Yes - Events I tend to score are either Dingy or Windsurfing and in these, a BFD or UFD boats/boards would not continue the race and would not finish the race.

I confess to not being the correct person to answer that question. As it’s many years now since I’ve raced seriously on the water, but there is an individual recall flag. But what I do know, is what I see on the race sheets where there is a list of OCS’s which have been listed and then crossed out where they have gone back and rounded the ends to clear themselves, and those that are marked as BFD very rarely have a finish position - so many do know. Yes fully agree there are some that think there weren’t OCS when they were but I doubt it is 99%. And then there is the question of if they didn’t start correctly can they be counted as finishing. I’ll leave this to the experts to discuss. All I’m interested in is that Sailwave works correctly. So for the time being I’ll leave it as it is while others discuss it. As you correctly said its very easy for the scorer to change this if they need to.

OCS, BFD & UFD did not start correctly
and therefore cannot finish correctly!
However, finish definition makes no mention
of having started correctly!

From RRS Definitions:

The important

thing is to
make sure that
the Sailwave
scoring codes
properties are
configured
correctly. It
turns out that
both the UFD
and BFD
scoring codes
don’t have the
correct
property set.
It’s easy to
change the
property by
checking the
checkbox that

"This code

implies that
the boat
finished the
race"* for
both BFD and
UFD scoring
codes. The
TLE points
will be
incorrect if
you don’t do
this and you
have BFD/UFD
results.

In the

first race of
the event we
had two TLE
scores. Also,
in that race
we had two RDG
scores for
rendering
assistance.
The jury
decided that
the one boat
would have
finished
outside the
finish window
time limit
even if she
hadn’t
rendered
assistance and
awarded her
RDG points
equivalent to
the TLE

other boat
would have
finished
within the

received RDG
points based
on a mark
rounding
position.

Because

the RDG points
affected the
TLE points, I
needed two RDG

one with the
boat finished
property and
one without.
I used RDGf
and RDGnf.
