Scoring formula used by the PWCA in the 2011 season:

  • GAP, but with only Leading, Time and Distance points
  • standard GAP day quality, with additional nominal launch parameter to reduce influence of a few non-launchers on launch quality
  • slightly different leading coefficient calculation (distance2 instead of distance) to reward leading out early in the task
  • PWCA stopped task rules:
    • Score-back by 5 minutes
    • Bonus distance based on altitude at stop time
    • time window for elapsed time races or races with multiple start gates
    • pilots between ESS and goal are scored for whole flight
    • time points reduction for all pilots in goal (equivalent to pilot crossing ESS exactly at stop time)
