Results in the current calendar year (last 12 months) Y=1.5
Results in the past calendar year (last 13 to 24 months) Y=1.0
Quality Factor Q = 1 + N/30
N is the number of competitors who are eligible for ranking points in the regatta and who are in the top 30 of the last published ranking list.
Q is never less than 1.0 or more than 1.5 For World Championship events and Continental Championships Q is always 1.5
