World Sailing recently published a revision to Case 116. Case 116 has not been without some controversy and perhaps confusion.  And just in time for this revision, RacingRulesOfSailing has released a new feature that compares versions of the cases as they evolve.

You will find a button on the right side of the page on the list of cases which will compare the most recent version with the previous.  For Case 116, it's here

So, with the changes to Case 116, what is the effect on how you give redress?

Ben, I think “RRoS” and it’s older brother “RRoS.org”  might be my fault.  I started using it as an abbreviation on for the site’s name ever since I first found Paul’s site, and it started growing roots.

So I think the change here is to just to remove the language about excluding the boat's worst score.  Otherwise I think the math is still the same:
After two races, neither can be scored based on redress of average points.
After three races, one can be based on redress of average points.  
After four races, still only one can be based on average points.
After five races, two can be based on average points.
However, if after five races the regatta is excluding the worst score, it is not counted in the series score, and only one race can be based on redress of average points.
And so on...
