NSC (Not Sailed Course) is a score given by the Race Committee. If it was the boat retiring then it would be scored RTD.Refreshing to see a boat "do the right thing" after realizing "they did the wrong thing", particularly at that level. Major international sport is littered with cases of high-level performers making a mistake and then fighting to try to prove that they didn't or that they should be exonerated or whatever. Major mistake on their part, but classy decision to acknowledge the mistake. (Assuming they did so, rather than just bring scored DNF independently by RORC).
For a lower-level program, it wouldn't be too hard a mistake to make... You know the rock is a mark, and you know the TSS is a TSS... They rounded the mark and avoided the TSS. They just failed to realize that the TSS was also a mark. But for a program at that level, that mistake shouldn't happen. At least it didn't cost them a fleet podium or a line honors trophy. Hopefully the owner had fun anyway.
She is shown as being "RET" RetiredGo onto IRC Overall in the tracker, scroll down, you will see her at 291 with no finishing time against her
Maybe they meant the navigator.I'm showing Rambler as being "RET" Retired.
That would be the correct course of action for not sailing the course. Used to be RTD or RAF but not sure when ISAF changed the designation. Just Checked my old rules books - 2017. Shows how long these terms live in us old guy's memories. Mast abeam anyone?? he heShe is shown as being "RET" Retired
60.2 or 60.3 do not specify where information comes from except it cannot come from an invalid protest. The way the rules read generally if they don't say you can't do something then you can. So if the Race Committee or Protest Committee (or any member) actually viewed the tracker )live or in replay) and saw Rambler 88's track they could protest.The 2021-2024 new RRS includes a new provision for the RC to score a boat NSC if there is evidence they did not sail the course. In the past, someone would need to protest.
Easier for RC and PC, harder for competitors....but probably fair.
Tala finished 3rd overall and 1st in division. Not bad going.Where are the TP52s? They regularlly win most of the offshore events, yet I only see one IRC52 (Tala) sailing. Yes, no foils, but still some of the fastest boats around. just seems odd.
