How the Points Work

The AORS Point scoring system will be used for the Shaw and Partners WA Race Week for the 4 AORS events – Fenn West Coast Downwind, The Ben Hewitt Sunset Surf Ski Series Race 1 and 2 and Shaw and Partners The Doctor.

Points for the Dash for Cash are listed below and outlined on the Dash for Cash event page

Competitors combined total points across the events (either 4 or 5 events as applicable to your category) will be used to determine overall placings for the Shaw and Partners WA Race Week. Where one or more competitors receives equal overall points the best result in The Doctor will decide the overall position for the WA Race Week.
