Unless there was video footage to prove the infraction, I don't see this being a viable option.
The time frame for notifying the Race Committee of a protest is set in Appendix E 6.5 as 10 minutes after the last boat finishes. Frequently that is modified by the regatta Sailing Instructions to either 5 minutes or even 2 minutes.

A protest may be lodged after the heat has finished - but that is different from hailing Protest at the time of the incident.

For a breach of a rule of Part 2 (when boats meet), or hitting a mark R 31, the protest hail must be at the time of the incident. However for a boat failing to sail the course correctly R 28, the hail may be done at the finish line after the boat has finished.

Just because a boat is protested does not mean that they will be found at fault. However after a Protest hearing, a boat that is a party to the hearing may be DSQ unless it is shown that they took an alternative penalty at the time of the incident.

A point of view about sail racing protest

I think this is a great way to finish off this discussion before the next RRS question arises:

Rowland makes some very good points about protests and how to go about them in a non-antagonistic way.

For this reader, it is inappropriate and irratating having to navigate around beer to read about protests. I did searched for the ususal "x" to delete but couldn't locate it.

These new pop up ads have the real X way off in the right margin and somewhat ghosted out. Had one from Sears yesterday that was driving me to never shop there again!

The other thing about the ad feeds is that malware writers are submitting ads to the feed that try and induce you to load their junk. The most common one lately is a window that tells you that your Flash version is out of date and you should click a button to update it.

Don't.

It's a cute scam because different people get different ads depending on the profile the ad feed has for you.

Cheers,

Earl

Hi John,

At P3, the yellow boat mast hook onto the blue mast, is blue at fault?

Yes. Green was on starboard and Blue on port. Blue has to keep clear of Green. Blue's decision to gibe in front of Green was a very bad one!

Here's another scenario using the example above.
Both boats are on starboard approaching the mark.
Once blue rounds the mark, let's say she does not gybe, but stays on starboard tack (wing on wing) when the collision occurs.
Since blue is the windward boat, so does that mean she must keep clear of the boats sailing upwind if they are both on the same tack based on rule 11?

11 ON THE SAME TACK, OVERLAPPED
When boats are on the same tack and overlapped, a windward boat
shall keep clear of a leeward boat.

Yes. R11 applies.

Starting question -

Situation: 40 seconds to start. Blue and Yellow approach from below the line, Yellow on port tack, Blue on starboard. Both go head to wind at about 30 seconds before the gun and then begin drifting toward each other while both remain head to wind.

At location 6 they bump beams. Neither has sufficient rudder response to avoid the collision. Does the last heading, even though it was some time before the contact, determine their course for the purpose of determining who has right of way, so Yellow is at fault?

And yes, blue should have fallen off to remain on starboard so as to defend his "space", but he didn't.

''And yes, blue should have fallen off to remain on starboard so as to defend his "space", but he didn't. ''

Blue did remain on starboard as at no time did she go beyond head to wind (a tack).
Similarly yellow remained on port the whole time.
So as long as blue didnt alter course and prevent yellow from keeping clear then yellow is in the wrong (port and starboard.
