The Heat Management System (HMS) is used at most races and is designed to provide a management system when there is a requirement for more than one heat (fleet) of boats to be sailed in each race.It is an evolution of earlier system used by the MYA and is currently the accepted system for use around the world.
It is important that all the documents are downloaded and used in conjunction with the HMS scoring system and SSI’s
Race committees are recommended to read the rules of this system with the SSIs and in conjunction with the HMS Advice Notes that are part of this document HMS 2016 v1a attached below
All the documents are to be used together when multi heat racing take place, however the HMS scoring software can be used for single fleets where a digital version is required for websites etc.
If you have any questions about the HMS please contact the MYA Race Officer who will put you in touch with the appropriate person.
