Successful yacht classes and clubs sooner or later reach the point at which the number ofentries for an event exceeds the number that they feel comfortable accommodating in onerace and some form of heat system is needed. In Model Yachting Magazine Issue #134,published in 2003, there are three excellent articles describing the most commonly usedHeat Systems:

  • Promotion/Relegation (Sometimes referred to as EORS, Equal Opportunity Racing System and now, officially, in its most up to date form as Heat Management System 2014 [HMS 2014], endorsed by ISAF Radio Sailing Division for international competition.)
  • Odds-Evens
  • Matrix Systems
Since that time a considerable body of experience with heat systems has been accumulatedand I believe it is fair to say that the vast majority of US radio sailing regattasrequiring heat racing use either HMS 2014 (or earlier versions) or Odds-Evens systemstoday. Excellent computer scoring systems have been developed and tested under fieldconditions for both these systems making each of them viable options for Race Committeeuse. Matrix systems now seem to have been phased out as they are cumbersome and difficultto adjust for skippers who withdraw and not readily amenable to computer scoring.

At what point should a Regatta Committee consider splitting a fleet into heats? The answerprimarily depends on local conditions such as visibility, distance of marks from theskipper control area etc. However somewhere between 10 and 20 boats per heat will be apractical limit beyond which mark roundings become a nightmare for skippers and RaceCommittee alike. The actual maximum fleet size set affects each system differently. Forexample, if the fleet maximum is set at 15 boats, HMS will accommodate up to 27 boatsbefore requiring three heats whereas Odd-Even will accommodate up to 30 boats.

HMS 2014 (Promotion/Relegation)

Promotion/Relegation is a system in which after one or two seeding races the fleet isdivided into heats, A, B, C, D etc based on either total or lowest Race Scores and it isdetermined how many boats (x) will be promoted/relegated (x is usually 4 or 6). The lowestfleet heat is run first and the top x boats are not scored but stay on the water and racein the next higher heat. At the end of this heat x boats are promoted and x boats arerelegated and so on until the A fleet completes the race. The whole fleet is thus scoredfrom top to bottom.

This system is the international standard, available as a computer based system and isused by the IOM Class and several others. HMS 2014 is a simple update to HMS 2013 which hasa nice capability to produce .pdf versions of the score sheet at the push of a button if Excel 97 or later is used.The system is primarily designed for PC use and use on Maccomputers is not recommended. Whether the scoring is done manually or using a computer-basedsystem it is recommended that a Fleet Control Board is used to display and managethe heat promotion/relegation visually for all skippers to see. The principal currentsystem administrator is Henry Farley, UK ([email protected]).

Rc Scoring Pro Go Fast

Comments:

  • Pro - Arguably the most rigorous in determining absolutely a top to bottom finishorder for each race. Can handle a large number of entrants if you are prepared to go tomulti-fleets (>2). The voluminous Instructions which cover a wide range of eventualities,while seemingly complex, in practice can be run quite smoothly. Skippers will sail againstskippers with a similar skill level.
  • Con - The system procedures do modify RRS somewhat especially regarding handlingof protest and redress hearings which, if they potentially impact promotion or relegation,need to be dealt with promptly before the next heat can begin. It is possible for skipperswho find them selves 'on the bubble', continually being promoted and relegated, to sail asignificantly greater number of heats than skippers who predominantly stay in one fleet oranother which can be a burden.

Odd-Even System

This system, introduced from Europe in the early 2000’s was first used by the US LaserClass for the 2002 NCR and has since been adopted by the SeaWind Class as its favored heatsystem and used successfully in all NCR’s since 2007 and most Regional Championships. First trax pet carrier hitch mount. OurClub has used it for club events as well as major regattas. The system can be run quiteeasily in manual form but recently an excellent TWEAT (TWo-hEAT) computer scoring systemhas been developed by Carl Hansen ([email protected]) and used successfully at severalmajor regattas. The primary version TWEAT deals with two heats but a new version TWEAT ABcis now also available that can deal with one, two or three heats. The following documentsdescribe the current systems:

Comments:

  • Pro - The manual system is very easy to run for small fleets using the specialscore-sheets. The line-up for each heat is called from the score sheet from the previousrace. The new TWEAT Excel scoring system has been used successfully now in several eventsalthough minor updates are still being made to improve functionality and ease of use.Printed line-up and scoring sheets for the next set of heats were ready for RD useapproximately 2 minutes after completion of the previous set of heats. The system shufflesthe fleet from top to bottom based on the previous heat placings so each heat has a fullrange of skipper experience. All level skippers get to compete against the best andbetween heats can watch some of their peers and learn from watching what the top skippersdo.
  • Con - Skippers of different skill levels will be grouped together.

Pond-side computer scoring

Many clubs are afraid to trust pond-side computer scoring because of concerns about systemreliability, battery life, screen visibility issues, date entry errors etc. Both of theabove described systems have built-in verification safeguards to recognize and flag dataentry errors and take care of tie-breaking, discards and boats that withdraw or add in,after an event has begun, quite seamlessly.

While either system can be run using a laptop and manual score board, addition of a pondside printer can materially assist Race Committees with printed line-ups and score sheets.Printing and distributing a set of final score sheets to hand out to all skippers at theAwards Ceremony is a nice touch that skippers appreciate!System requirements:
