Arrangørrot i Bacardi Cup

I kjølvannet av åpningsregattaen har det oppstått mye rot om hvem som får og hvem som ikke får godtgjørelse etter  startbåtfadese.


- Vil redress innvilget på vilkårlig grunnlag avgjøre regattaen?, spør Paul Cayard:

Cayard er en av deltakerne i Bacardi Cup, og har denne kommentaren til regattaledelsen i årets regatta:

- There was confusion at the start (of Race 1) as the main race committee vessel at the starboard end of the line signaled an individual recall while a committee boat at the port end of the line raced across the bows of the fleet in what appeared to be a general recall. This boat actually raced back across the bows of the fleet a second time. Some competitors went back to the starting area, most stopped sailing, but the main race committee never signaled a general recall and they thought it was a race. Needless to say, it was more than a bit confusing and the jury is going to decide if we even had a race today (Sunday). “

Og dagen etter

- The upshot of the redress claims in Sunday’s first race was that the jury gave redress to those who complained. Almost everyone lost something in the confusion; but only four boats filed for redress. I just figured the race was going to be thrown out, but I was wrong. About four people complained, one of them being Peter Bromby of Bermuda who had a great race today (Monday) finishing second. So the four boats who filed for redress will receive the average of their scores for that first race (editor note: 6 are receiving average points for 1st race), making it a bit difficult to calculate the scores as their scores will be a moving average every day.” --
