Protest - September 12, 2004
Race 4 - 1st Leeward Mark Rounding - Team W (Sail 1) vs. Team F (Sail 12)
As described by Team W.
Team W was on starboard tack between Teams F and Z who were both on starboard as well.
Approximately 10 boat lengths boat lengths from the Lee Mark Team F gybes.
Team W dips to get inside Team F and Team Z. Team F was on Port and Team W was on Starboard
and with an inside overlap as they entered the 2 boat length circle.
Team W hails "inside over overlap" but Team F failed to give room in accordance with 18-2(d).
As a result of Team F failing to give room Team W was forced to gybe and miss the mark.
This caused Team W to lose at least 3 boats as it had to gybe again to round the mark.
Protest allowed. Team F is disqualified.
(Protest Committee observed the foul.)
