How does the MBA League Champions points system work?
We do not want to get too involved with how each school decides it’s scoring system, so we simply take the results for the regatta from the school. We score from a lower is better viewpoint. If you are in first place, you get 1 point. If you are in last place or did not participate in that regatta and their 15 boats in the regatta, then you get 15 points (this promotes schools’ participation in all regattas). We then take all the points and sum them up. Simple.
Do we include Division B or secondary regatta results?
No. At the moment we are only including the scores from the primary regatta. We are open for ideas in how to include the division B or secondary regatta results.
We don’t like this point system, why not use…?
We are open to other point systems, so please provide some feedback or become more involved with us to make a better system that works for everyone. We have considered a “best 3 of 4” system but still feel a full sum provides the correct incentive for participation in all regattas.
Why is xx regatta not included in this league?
We are currently using the 5 most prominent MBA regattas in this scoring system. If you feel another regatta should be included. Please let us know.
Can I help make the MBA Sailing League better?
Of course you can. We could also use more help to make this league better. Please send us an email and let’s start talking.
How can I add photos to the regatta pages?
Their are two ways to add photos. The easiest is to upload them to your Flickr account and use a specific tag. We will then stream all photos from Flickr with that tag. The tags to use are: mbascup, globalmbatrophy, cranfieldregatta, alumnibusinesscup. Otherwise can either upload your photos directly using the form at the bottom.
