Hi, I've been using sailwave for a while now and it is a
great resource for small classes like ourselves.

I have a question on the scoring which is as follows :

I am looking to score the number of boats that finished
+1 for a scoring code but it seems it is not in the list
of scoring method when editing the scoring. And I don't
think I can create such a formula either.

Could you tell me if it is possible to score that way ?
and if not who to contact to make a recommendation to add
this to the next build ?

Thanks

Yeah, its straightforward. Varies a bit with version though. In version 2 build 4 at least select menus
Setup/Scoring System/Scoring Codes tab.

Pick the code you want to change, hit edit, and select the method tab.

Go down the long and complicated list (which I usually have to read two or three times because the options are all substantially similar) and check against "ponts for place of (the number of finishers in the race plus N points) and then put 1 in the value box at the top.
