OPA Racing General Rules
While you are watching the race, it's nice to be able to tell who's winning the race. Sometimes that can be difficult as several classes of boats race at the same time. They may not be racing against each other, yet they may appear to be if you're not paying attention to their numbers. Each Class runs ONLY against the ones running in their class.

There are actually eleven individual classes, broken up into separate races; there are several races happening at one time. The numbers on the front of each boat will indicate what class they are racing in. Below is a chart to help you follow the races.

* Indicates boats in classes which are based on speed and cannot go over the class bracketed speed. Any boat caught breaking out of their speed bracket will receive last place points and will start the next race in the outside lane. GPS units will track this. GPS units are mandatory in each race boat, otherwise they will be disqualified.

An official start time begins when the bow of the boat crosses the start line.  All boats must cross the start line to be scored for that event.  The boat is then scored by completed laps/distance completed.  A completed lap is when a boat crosses the start line, and continues around the marks of the course and back to the finish line.
