A list of career points in R/CU, from 1974. Current through the 2018 season.
It is important to note that R/CU's points systems have changed slightly over the year; for the first few years of the club, points included every race of the year. As the race schedule increased to 12, 15, and now 11 races per year, the club adopted a "Best Ten" format, where points from a driver's best ten races of the year would contribute to the season standings. This was done to avoid penalizing drivers who could not make it to every race.
For every heat, scoring is as follows:
1st: 400 points
For preliminary heat races, if a boat leaves debris on the course without interference from another boat, it will receive 95 points regardless of finish position.
If boat A is forced dead by boat B, boat B will receive a disqualification and no points. Boat A will receive 169 points.
