Original Sin should be renamed "Cardinal Sin" for being protested by the Race Committee for this.!

ORIGINAL SIN
777
Rating Div 2​
Race Committee​
1610 on
21/08/2022​
FACTS
1. 200m N of the finish line a Marshal directed 777 to alter course due to an aircraft movement.
2. 777 crossed an extension of the finish line at 14:32:18.
3. Prior to the incident the RC made multiple calls to the fleet on VHF 72 and 77 to keep clear of the aircraft exclusion zone due to an aircraft movement.
4. Boats are required to monitor VHF Channel 72 and 77 while racing.
5. 777 did not hear the RC radio calls.
4. 777 sailed away as directed, and then returned and crossed the finish line under mainsail only at 14:39:09.

CONCLUSIONS
By not properly monitoring the required VHF race frequencies 777 broke SI 2.4 and 23.2 and by their own action lost the available opportunity to change their finishing strategy, and therefore they do not satisfy the no fault requirement of RRS 62.1.​

It's a real shame that there's no sailing media up there that could do some digging on the matter and write up some kind of report for those of us who aren't there and/or in the know...
Sailor Girl is up there!

Just messaged a mate on Secret Men's Business, no current IRC certificate apparently. What a clusterfuck.

...... Wharro is not shy to controversy so I thought there may have been something else going on. Obviously Alive behind them has spotted something with regards to not sailing the correct course.
A report from a competitor won't result in an NSC, an RCs own observations or findings may.

If it involved Alive she would have had to protest under RRS 28

Anyone know why Matador has disappeared from results
Still in the press releases

Matador

David Doherty's Matador thrived in Tuesday's lighter conditions, to come first in IRC Division 1. This puts Matador in hot contention for the overall lead, sitting one-point behind Max Klink's Caro (Royal New Zealand Yacht Squadron and the Royal Ocean Racing Club).

Yes but that was Tuesday, just before she "disappeared"

Magically reappeared...how do you do that ? One moment you're there,then you're gone,now you're back. Occupational hazard racing against Ichi Ban ? At least last time there was a protest.

Looks like OS protested the Committee seeking redress under 62.1 but shot themselves in the foot by not monitoring the required VHF channels while racing. Where have we heard of that scenario before?

Oats never went out yesterday. The others did. Was blowing that's for sure. I wonder if Oats had an issue or simply decided too much wind? Caro still doing well.

Broke something according to Sailor Girls live on board today, didn't catch what it was.

Edit. Broke a deflector?

Oats vs Comanche video start by Sailor Girl who is onboard Oats. Oats gets the better of Andoo and is off to an early lead. 15-18 Knots

Short lived. Andoo won by about 3 mins.
Wasn't doubting it with 20 knots to play with the Big Indian ain't gettin beaten by nobody. Ichi Ban got a win against Caro and Matador still up there. In fact top 3 places for the series so far Caro 7 , Matador 10 and Ichi Ban 11. There is a protest hearing on between Matador and RC

Alive and Whisper on equal points in the big boat class.
