Task Week Scoring

There are three Task Groups, A, B and C. Each pilot will be entered in all three Task Groups.

Pilots can choose which task they fly each day, and do not need to formally declare beforehand which task they intend to fly. They are therefore free to change their mind if the conditions are not as hoped. However, note that this will have an effect on the BGA Ladder points

Only one task per pilot will be scored for each day.

Tasks to be submitted to the BGA Ladder to enable IGC files to be downloaded for scoring. Alternatively, IGC files can be emailed to the scorer.

Daily ‘class’ results will be published as normal on Soaring Spot.

Overall results will be published via the Downloads section on Soaring Spot (it can't cope with scoring across multiple classes).

Any airspace infringements will result in being scored as landing at that point, irrespective of whether the task has been started or not.

Normal BGA 1000 point scoring will be applied to each task group except that:

  • No wind adjustment (windicapping) will be applied

  • If a pilot abandons a task and lands back at Dunstable, the distance between Dunstable and the point that SeeYou considers them to have landed out will be added to their distance for scoring.

  • For day points calculations, the 'number of participating gliders' will be considered to be the number of gliders launched in the task group (instead of 'number not withdrawn').
    In effect, the number of traces submitted for the task will determine 'number launched', so if it's not obvious which task was being flown, you will need to make a comment on the ladder or in your email.

  • The five* best scores by any pilot across all task groups, will be counted against their total for the week.
    * may be revised depending on the number of days that we fly.
