Two sailors had the following scores in a seven race series with one throwout allowed.
Sailor A 4 4 3 4 2 2 2
Sailor B 2 2 2 2 8 16 1
After the throwout each sailor had 17 points.
Which sailor had the most consistent series? Which sailor had the worst individual races? Which sailor won the tiebreaker under the current Racing Rules of Sailing?
This is not some theoretical exercise. These are real results from a regatta sailed this week.
