Thread: effect of co-op's score on level of competition in next regatta

    effect of co-op's score on level of competition in next regatta

    Does your co-op's performance in a regatta effect how strong your competition will be in the next regatta?

    The leader of my co-op thinks that if you come first in your regatta by a huge margin, then you will be placed in a more competitive group for the next regatta, compared to being placed in a less competitive group if you come first by a narrow margin.

    I always thought that your starting time was the only factor determining which group you ended up in. Are there other factors, like past performance, etc.?


    Play for fun, but remember that it's fun to win.

    I don’t find that past performance makes a difference, but others may think differently.
    Ioften race alone and usually finish Tuesday or Wednesday.
    I always finish in the top three and more often than not in first.

    As each team can achieve the same amount of points I don’t see how to get a large margin, except to finish first a long time before the other teams do, but I don’t think that would make a difference, it doesn’t seem to for me, whether alone or with a team. Not sure if it would make a difference for those on the GLB board.
