The RYA has already a long standing policy to be more "flexible" towards the whole protest hearing issue, mentioned in yesterdays post. I was send a file called RYA RACING BEST PRACTICES Arbitration.doc by one of my readers (thanks Mike!) in which their advise on arbitration is outlined. I haven't had time to study the whole document, but already found the last page very interesting. It's a changed template of the backside of a protest form adapted for Arbitration. The RYA is working on an updated version, which will become available on their website soon.

Sooner rather then later the updated version has become available!
On this page of the RYA website, you can find the 2009 version together with a standard and comprehensive protest-form.
