    PART 2 WHEN BOATS MEET The rules of Part 2 apply between boats that are sailing in or near the racing area and intend to race, are racing, or have been racing.

    Lashings...

    simple rolling hitch.. and also relies on the expanding shape of the purchases. Neat, but hardly rocket surgery.

    O/T - Moving to Australia; Boston Suburbs to Sydney

    ........ to Noumea

    been 35-40ish gusting 50 on and off at Wattamolla for a couple of days. Sydney wave height currently 5-ish m and rising let's hope the wind and waves has pushed those containers North, rather than them drifting South with that eddy off Sydney!

    Rules Question: Time limit for protests, but not race finish..

    ha -- I just googled myself and I see the OA has used this on many races previously. Weird. The particular upcoming race I'm concerned with is a tad over 1000nm..

    Rules Question: Time limit for protests, but not race finish..

    Katydid, thanks for putting time into that well articulated response. I didn't mention the NOR before, but the protest time limit is also there; which unfortunately nix's that part of your argument. As to 'why' this is in the NOR&SI which others have queried - the reason appears to be availability of international jury (Appendix N) members. Oddly - this may become more of an issue as the weather looks like it may delay the start a day or so !
