The Qoin GPS Navigation Challenge is comprised of a Short Course and a Marathon event, each of which will determine place getters based on “minimum points lost” in two separate speed categories, defined as Category 1 equal to a speed over ground of between 5 and 9.99 knots and Category 2 defined as a speed over ground equal to or greater than 10 knots, but not exceeding 20.0 knots. A competitor must complete both the Short Course and Marathon event, with the “minimum points lost” for both events combined to equal the vessel’s score in qualification for a place in the Qoin GPS Challenge. The cash prizes will be awarded to the best 40% of each speed category. In addition the top 3 vessels in each category in each event will attract prizes.
