Re: Mutiny at Dawn - Transpac Race 2013
From the 2013 NOR:
1.6 Auto pilot use is only permitted for double handed boats.
13.3 For infractions of the Notice of Race or Sailing Instructions, the Race Committee may protest and the Jury
may penalize the offending yacht by adding a time penalty
For a boat that was going to be DFL anyway, it seems like the RC might just demote them to even more DFL. But then again, 13.3 leaves a lot more weasel room than I am used to in a NOR.
Well there you go. And as LetsGo called it in and got the verbal ruling which fits the above...what's the issue?
"Even More DFL". Best thing to come out of this thread yet.
PS - Coquina, this is an insane photo:
We had a similar thing on our old boat on Lake Travis:
Not quite as nasty looking as yours!
