We have been issued our ORR rating for the Mac Race, and it is 0.864 All-Purpose TOT (time on time) and 0.856 Offwind TOT. The race committee will most likely follow history and use the All-Purpose rating.
So what do these numbers mean? Well, the higher the number the faster boat, in the rated conditions, and the lower the number equals a slower boat. The race committee will use one of the following formulas at the end of the race to calculate our corrected finish time.
Time on Time Scoring:
Corrected Time = TOT x Elapsed Time
Time on Distance Scoring:
Corrected Time=Elapsed Time - (Rating - Rating Scratch Boat) x Distance
