our UNT SI:Umpiring: We apply the ISAF rules including the appendix D. UN team uses preferally the manual umpire system. Cancellations are allowed. In case a team constests a result, the result is adjourned until the discussions based on the replay lead to an agreement. In case of withdrawal or of disconnection, the rule 3Da) applies unless all(*) the competitors agree to restart the race".
(*) "All" has to be interpreted by "those who answer in the minute" the ISAF rule D3a): Each boat finishing a race, whether or not rule 28.1 has been complied with, shall be scored points equal to her finishing place. All other boats shall be scored points equal to the num- ber of boats entitled to race. *****So if 2 blues leave in a 8 boats race, they are scored 8 each ! That is killing their team.
*** cu tomorrow in great shape ! Jluc
