Below please find schedules for 4-9 teams in either 4 or 6 boats. All the schedules are self populating: Just enter the team name click enter and the name should appear in the schedules.
All schedules appear in Excel workbooks: just look at the tabs at the bottom of the page to select the schedule you want.
There are two main types of schedule:
Type A Schedules: If the boats are the same then the simplest schedules may have teams sailing in some but not all the boats. There are fewer double changes and so this is the fastest schedule to use.

Type B Schedules: The boats may have some differences, so these schedules attempt to ensure the teams all sail in all the boats. This means more double changes and as a result the schedule takes a little longer to complete.

For the final day there is a new format named the “Hamburg Format”. This is a series of races where each team has two chances of progressing to the final. The team ranked first after the previous stages is guaranteed a place in the final. Big bonus of the system is that we get clear rank order without having to have semi finals. petit finals etc which are very time consuming. So far used at Hamburg and Antibes with great success.
