Presented at the November 6, 1999, Central Council meeting and approved at the January 15th, 2000 Annual General Meeting for implementation in the coming season.

This method incorporated the "de-linking" of the NFS value for every class and incorporating a base NFS-Delta value of 18.

The NFS-Delta would then be able to be adjusted based on race data.

Standard ASP adjustments based on the size of the LP% were still incorporated but resulted in -3, 0, +3 depending on the size of the Jib.
