Good point, but to my knowledge, this has not happened yet (in our class) in recent CORA racing history. The bigger races locally are Charleston Raceweek or the local regattas and are of the usual W/L design (and away from shallow water) where someone would consider a protest. In our low-key Wednesday night or weekend races, nobody seems to care.
