If qualified jurors are on hand the following procedure can take place.

9.1  To inform the Race Committee of the boat/s being protested, the boat intending to protest shall, immediately after finishing, provide the protested boat’s name either via VHF or verbally to the race committee boat.

9.2  Hearing Request forms are available at the race office.

9.3 The protest time limit is 60 minutes after the last boat has finished the last race of the day or the Race Committee signals no more racing today, whichever is later.

9.4 Arbitration is allowed in accordance with Appendix T

9.4.1 An arbitrator shall get consent from parties of a protest if the protest will go into either an arbitration or directly into a full protest hearing.

9.4.2 An arbitration hearing shall not be reopened. No conclusion of an arbitrator shall be subject to appeal or be grounds for redress.

9.4.3 Should the protest proceed to a protest hearing then the arbitrator may be a member of the Protest Committee. Any evidence given by an arbitrator during a protest hearing shall be given only in the presence of the parties to the hearing

DISCLAIMER

The Organising Committee, the Race Committee, the regatta sponsors and their representatives, officers, members and volunteers accept no liability whatsoever for any loss of life, property, personal injury or damage caused by or arising out of the regatta.
