OK John, I'll bite .....
A] English club crew wins 3-boat event in England; event not non-qualifying under "British" rules - each member of the crew picks up a point?
B] Same crew wins apparently analogous event in Belgium; event would not have been non-qualifying under "British" rules - each member of the crew should have another point, on report to Lower Mall?
C] Same crew wins apparently analogous event at a Welsh competition - should this triumph not likewise be reported to Lower Mall for points?
