Ranking
The race will be measured by GPS and the contestants should bring their own GPS devices. The ranking is based on the rules of GP3S (Basic Rules,
www.gps-speedsurfing.com).

Accepted Devices GPS: Navi GT31 / Navi GT11 / Amaryllo Triptracker. Awards will be given only to participants who will use any of the accepted devices. The ranking of each heat will be calculated based on:
• Best average (5 best 10 second runs), and in case of a tie:
• Best ten second run, up until the 5th run, and then
• Best 2 second run.

Wind Limits – Racing Heats

A heat will be recorded as valid automatically when five (5) athletes achieve faster average speed than 30 knots, measured over 5x10 seconds, regardless of the length that the heat will run. There will be no wind speed limit. Each heat will have a maximum duration of 90 minutes, during which athletes will be able to make as many runs as desired. There can be up to 3 heats per race day. The race will be valid even with the completion of a one (1) heat.

Results

After completion of all heats of each race day, competitors will hand in their sessions' data through the SD card of their GPS. Race results will be produced after processing the data by appropriate software. For each race will be announced a separate Final Ranking. The final ranking of the championships will come after aggregation of all heats to be held (with 3 races completed, there will be 1 discard, after 6 races 2 discards, after 9 races 3 discards). In case of a tie, following will be used:
• Best ten second run, up until the 5th run, and then
• Best 2 second run
