That is where you drop out of the Regatta. Each co-op races against other co-ops of the same size. If you don't want to participate in the Regatta you need to uncheck that box at the start of each Regatta. Otherwise, you will be counted and your co-op will compete with other teams that have the same number of co-op members. It does your co-op a disservice if you keep that box checked but do not help out in the Regatta since there will really be one less person (you) helping out against other teams that do have that extra person helping out.

That person would still have their points count towards the team total, but would lose their own rewards they worked for. So, the team would feel the loss with them not doing any more tasks, but that person really feels the consequences of that action by losing their rewards for that week.
What if you have one person that is doing the regatta but is not fast enough to finish task? Does that take away more points? For example I have 3 members in my coop including me... Well we have one that picks task that she cannot complete... Will that effect us bad

Yes. It is better that she opts out of the Regatta for that week for the sake of your co-op score or learns how to just take tasks she knows she can finish BEFORE taking the task. She can prepare ahead of time for some Regatta tasks, like making sure she has enough feed on shelves for feeding tasks or accumulating lots (around80 picks, 40 stick and box dynamite) of mining supplies to do the mining task quick.

It depends what the goal and how competitive your co-op is. Either if your co-op aims to reach the top 200 and stay there, or placing 1st in most races.
Dumping is mainly to refresh a lower point or difficult task with one that's higher points and/or easier (difficulty based on the time it takes to complete the task). In most cases it's best to dump any task that isn't worth 135 points rather than dumping 'easy' or 'hard' tasks.
If your co-op is aiming for the top 200 that means 135 tasks only, and doing hard tasks is a must since it's costly to refresh for more 135 tasks with the dumping penalty. Lowering the amount of dumped tasks is the only way to improve the leaderboards score with a perfect 135 + extra task full co-op (especially if they are racing with the max 30 members).
If your co-op is aiming for 1st in races that means 125-135 point tasks (range can be vary depending on what your co-op prefers and how competitive other co-ops are in that weeks race), and doing hard tasks is optional. Doing higher point tasks is key in some races depending on how competitive other co-ops are. In some cases missing out on a single 135 point task can cost your co-op a 1st place position in the race.
I love the Regata but having problems . The picture I am using to identify myself when I choose a task is not the picture that shows up on the right side of the task sheet- they are pictures of what looks like pirates or sailors!

Yes as long as a member is opted in they will receive rewards from regattas. If they aren't participating it's up to you or other members to communicate with them, or kick if they aren't active or completing enough tasks.
Hello. My CoOp is called Warbler Island. We are requesting players that work hard to help out and participate. Our symbol is orange with a flower. At the moment we are in Silver league. Our CoOp focuses on teamwork, kindness, chatting, and fun. If that sounds like something you would want to join, come check us out. The requirements are 2 tasks OR 30 helps. Might be bumped it later. My name is Artimé. Come join our CoOp!
I am leaving on vacation on Saturday and will not have wireless for 10 days. I will be finished with this regatta before I leave. How can I opt out for the next regatta without losing my rewards for this one?
