Scoring:

1. Must sail and must count Rolex Miami OCR
2. Final Finish Position (not net points) counts towards Series Standings.
3. Low Point Series Scoring based on Finish Positions in #2 above.
4. All boats count as placeholders. (Men, Women, Mixed, International)
5. Ties on series score to be broken in favor of the boat with the better finish at Rolex Miami OCR.
6. If less than five eligible teams or individuals compete in the minimum number of events to qualify 
    for the team, the Olympic Sailing Committee (OSC) may name fewer than five teams or individuals
    to the Team.

Additional Scoring Policies for multi-crewed classes:
1. In order to count towards series score, helm and crew members must be eligible to represent the
    USA in the 2004 Olympic Games.
2. Teams are encouraged to sail with the same helm and crew at each of the qualifying regattas.
3. If teams sail with different helm or crew at different events, the combination which sails together 
    at the Rolex Miami OCR will be presumed to be the team that qualifies for the US Sailing Team.
4. Teams which are unable to sail together at the Rolex Miami OCR, may apply to the OSC --  
    prior to the Rolex Miami OCR 
-- for an exception, provided they will sail together at one or more
    of the other qualifying events, and provided that the substitute team member at the Rolex Miami
    OCR is in agreement.
5. By prior written application, the OSC may score helm and crew separately.

Non Events
1. If the Rolex Miami OCR is a non-event, the OSC will announce new procedures for team
   Qualification, which may include existing and/or new qualifying events.
2. If an event other than the Rolex Miami OCR is a non-event, the OSC may adjust the system.
