If you prefere we can do internal team race! See you 21:10 I remember you our Sailing Instructions : http://sites.google.com/site/vskaddicted/Home/team-race-request-form ; (Rule 5 is NEW: care to take pens at finish line!!! Your score could be changed!; rule D-3A says that DNF BOATS will be classified at last, if the game is not restarted: so NADEO score may be invalid) Umpiring: 1) We apply the ISAF rules including the appendix D. 2) UN team uses preferally the manual umpire system. 3) Cancellations are allowed. 4) In case a team constests a result, the result is adjourned until the discussions based on the replay lead to an agreement. 5) A boat that has broken a rule just before or after crossing the finish line, and is unable to take a penalty turn due to being classified as finished by VSK, will have her finishing position adjusted as if she needed 30 seconds to promptly to take one penalty turns.6) In case of withdrawal or of disconnection, the rule D3a) applies unless all(*) the competitors agree to restart the race". (*) "All" has to be interpreted by "those who answer in the minute" Ethic: As the Nadeo umpiring system is not perfect, some guys are trying to use its weaknesses to cheat. We need some race ethic that can be summarized: To pen oponents is not the goal of Team-racing. Do not pen if the opponent does all his possible to avoid you. But if he clearly didnt respect a rule giving him an advantage, you have to protest. Marco.
