Better make up for another backlog. The list of Q&A’s has been growing again. Pick up the latest booklet and you are good to go up until Q&A 10 – 029;
The latest bunch since the last update are:
D 6 Q&A 10-024 The rights of an OCS boat that is sailing the course.
B 18 Q&A 10-025 Clarifications about Mark-Room and rule 18.3.
M 8 Q&A 10-026 Paddle test and the exceptions in rule 42.
M 9 Q&A 10-027 Proper Course and sail configuration.
J 10 Q&A 10-028 Protest flag display when multiple protests in a race.
J 11 Q&A 10-029 Redress for incidents that happen before the warning signal.
And then two who are not yet in the booklet, but have appeared since August 10:
The last one will need some creative questions if one boat denies knowing there was damage after contact. Don’t hesitate to involve the protesting boat to come up with a solid argument why the damage was obvious to both. They are the ones who did not raise the red flag promptly or hailed protest at the first reasonable opportunity. They should have reasons why a PC/Jury should accept 61.1(a)(3) and find the protest valid.
