Protest Number: 03
|Event: ISAF Sailing World Cup - Sail Melbourne||Race Number: 1|
|Protesting Boat: RC||Protested Boat: Sin 2|
|Protest Details: Failure to sail the course|
SIN 2 rounded the leeward mark then rounded slalom mark 3 instead of slalom mark 1, SIN 2 then rounded Slalom marks 2,3 and finished.
Slalom mark 1 was a pencil mark tht was not standing in its proper upright position and the Race Committee stationed a race committee boat near slalom mark 1 in order to draw attention to it.  When SIN 2 rounded the leeward mark the Race Committee boat was not in position relative to slalom mark 1.
SIN 2 failed to correctly sail the course as required by rule 28.1
As slalom mark 1 was not correctly layed there was an error by the Race Comittee which caused SIN 2 to break a rule.  Rules 60.3(a) (2) & 62.1 (a)
| ||Rule 60.39(a) (2) & 62.1 (a)|
| ||SIN 2 is DSQ from race 1. And SIN 2 is granted redress and is to be scored 2nd place in race 1.|
