Scoring:

1. Must sail, must count the minimum number of events as specified for each class above.
2. Final Finish Position (not net points) counts towards Series Standings.
3. Low Point Series Scoring using RRS rule A4.1, except that Final Finish Position will be used
    instead of individual race scores. RRS rules A4.2 and A9 are specifically NOT in force for the
    series scoring.
4. All boats count as place holders in the Final Finish Position (men, women, mixed, international).
5. If there is a series score tie between two or more boats, the tie shall be broken in favor of the boat
    with the better finish at the Pre-Trials.
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 2003 US Sailing 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. The helm must be the same person at all of the qualifying events that are counted towards the
    ranking.  For doublehanded boats the crew must be the same person at all of the qualifying events
    that are counted towards the ranking.  For triplehanded boats one of the crew other than the helm
    must be the same person at all of the qualifying events that are counted towards the ranking. 
 
3. In extremely unusual circumstances such as a medical emergency, the OSC Executive
    Committee may approve an exception to this policy.

Non Events
1. If the Rolex Miami OCR and/or the Pre-Trials 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 or the Pre-Trials is a non event, the system will
    become Must Sail, Must Count Rolex Miami OCR and the Pre-Trials
