||Thanks John, that's clear. While digging around in the see you stats I realised that I'd put in the wrong task duration (did total flight time instead) so that was educational too.

Your flight may be regarded as an FAI triangle with a dogleg. You may claim up to 5% extra distance over the FAI triangle size with no penalty.
Your FAI triangle DRU-SPE-RHO-DRU has a distance of 330.3km and your declared task has a distance of 348.6km. The difference is 18.3km which represents 5.5% of 330.3km, so the full distance cannot be claimed.
You *could* rescore the task as DRU-SPE-RHO-DRU, but you will get fewer points.
See rule 12.1, and the worked examples at www.bgaladder.co.uk/Examples/ExampleTaskShapes.html
Hope this clarifies.

John, thanks for providing such a great resource for us.
Yesterday I set a task that Seeyou showed as a FAI triangle with start and finish on a leg, but the ladder saw it differently and scored it as a four leg task. I'm curious about the apparent discrepancy.
