A brief explanation about the team results follows:

The points scored are based on the high point scoring system called “Rinderle B”.

The Junior teams compete with 3 members in a team – if a team is short, then a “Ghost” member is added automatically who scores zero points.  The team with the highest points wins.
Senior teams compete with only 2 members in a team for the class competition – for this competition there is no mixing of teams within a school.  For example we see that Bishops finished 1st, 2nd & 5th in the Laser 4.7 class.
The overall Senior team prize is more complex and involves the best results that the school managed to achieve.  The points of their best senior team is added to the points of their next best (excludes the team members in the best team) sailor who competed in any of the senior classes.  So we see that it may require only 3 sailors to win the overall team prize as happened this year when Bergvliet High triumphed with only 3 sailors in the entire competition!
