Which brand of binoculars display in real time COG and SOG and from say 10 mile way and at night? Fuck me.I'm just interested in hearing Harburg's(sp?) reasoning as to how they were greatly disadvantaged by not being able to see them on AIS. Did no one one board hand him a pair of binoculars for the duration of the race and point him towards Oats?
I suspect this is why BJ didn't protest - they knew it would be ruled invalid unless they could show that they had attempted to inform WOXI at earliest opportunity. There are some good lessons in this incident.Nope, no boat has notified WO of their intention to protest which must be done as soon as they became aware of the issue. I am not talking about protest time limits
In theory yes. Or it may mean competitors sort it between themselves for potential infringements and if no agreement someone has to lodge a protest. It is dumb thinking by simply having a cry on TV the RC or prosecutor is going to be the policeman in a self policed sport. If Harburg didn't know that he knows it now.Will this decision now mean more protests?
Do I win the meat tray?She has been non compliant since the day she was launched.
tungsten bulb now illegal, she was grandfathered.
powered winches and keel, so much for human powered sailboats.
the rules were never meant to apply to WOXI, MR knows that and was just being consistent.
