Thanks Joe

Could you explain how the monthly points are calculated.

Is it only the top scoring boat that counts?

Thanks
Apologies for the delay in replying. I've been hiking in France and just spotted your question.

My chart is unofficial and started around ten years ago as a response to the lack of updating of the leaderboard. I simply look at the points scored each month, as shown on the CTC site, and transfer the data manually to a spreadsheet. I do this for the top boat in each team. There's no reason why this couldn't be done for other crews; it's just a matter of time and patience. There were 129 crews on the virtual river last month.

Highly ranked crews have the effect of reducing the points scored by teams lower in the rankings. For instance, last month PaddyPower were the seventh ranked first team but lost points because the second crews of MAD, FM and ESPRIT were ranked higher.

Regards,
Joe
