– the Elimination scoring delivers on what it is supposed to do.  It rewards teams that sail well over many days.  It keep the points close when they should be close.

– The elimination scoring keeps the points gaps similar to the Hyeres scoring system, but keeps the order close to the Perth scoring system.

– The elimination scoring, for the most part is a moderating factor between the ‘unfairness’ created by cutting off so severely the qualification racing and having the qualification be so dominent, like it was in the Perth System.
