6


When an  Exoneration  Penalty  is  accepted:   • Neither  the  boat  nor  the  Protest  Committee  may  then  revoke  or  remove  the  penalty   • The   boat   shall   not   be   penalised   further   in   a   protest   hearing   when   the   protest   Committee   decide   it   was   appropriate   to   the   facts   found  and  applicable  rules.   15.2. For  the  Passage  Races  the  following  penalty  will  apply  to  a  boat  found  at  a  hearing  to  have  broken  a  rule  of  Part  2,  or  which  is  scored   OCS  in  accordance  with  Rule  29:-­‐   The  worst  of:   a)  add  5%  of  elapsed  time  to  corrected  time   b)  20%  of  places  rounded  up  to  next  whole  number   (This  changes  Rule  29  and  RRS  Appendix  A.)   15.3. Any  penalty  that  may  be  imposed  on  a  boat  or  boats  at  the  discretion  of  the  Protest  Committee  may  include  (but  is  not  restricted  to)   time  or  scoring  adjustments  to  the  race  in  question  or  to  any  other  race  or  to  the  series  overall.     16.

Boats  finishing  outside  these  limits  will  be  awarded  the  average  of  the  points  for  places  available  to  them  had  they  finished  within  the   time  limit.  This  changes  RRS  35  and  A4.   16.4. If  20%  or  less  of  a  class  finishes  within  the  time  limit,  then  the  Race  Committee  may,  for  all  boats  in  that  class,  use  positions  or  times   taken  at  the  previous  mark.  This  change  rule  35.   16.5. If   no   boat   finishes   within   the   Time   Limit,   and   if   the   Race   Committee   has   recorded   boats’   times   as   they   rounded   a   mark   prior   to   the   finish,  then  the  Race  Committee  may,  at  its  sole  discretion,  calculate  places  based  on  those  rounding  times  instead  of  abandoning  the   race.  (This  changes  rule  35.)

17. Use Of  Engines  (All  yachts)   A  boat’s  engine  may  be  used  for  propulsion  during  racing  in  the  following  circumstances:   (a)   To  rescue  life  and/or  craft.   (b)   A  tall  ship  restricted  in  her  ability  to  manoeuvre  during  tacking  and  gybing.  This  action  shall  not  be  used  to  provide  material  gain   during  the  race.   (c)   To  remove  a  craft  out  of  the  path  of  a  commercial  vessel.  The  onus  is  on  the  skipper  to  satisfy  the  Protest  Committee  that  such  an   action  was  necessary  and  provided  no  material  gain  during  the  race.   (d)   In  accordance  with  instruction  18  for  Cruising  and  Classic  Classes.   All  such  circumstances,  except  (b),  shall  be  logged  and  signed  by  the  skipper  and  one  crew  and  reported  in  the  declaration  form.     18. Use  Of  Engines  (Cruising  and  Classic  Classes)   18.1. Rule  42.1  is  changed  to  permit  boats  in  Cruising  and  Classic  Classes  to  use  an  engine  for  propulsion,  in  which  case  the  time(s)  the  engine   is  turned  on  and  off  for  propulsion  shall  be  logged  on  the  declaration  form  and  signed  by  the  skipper  and  one  crew.  See  also  instruction   17.   18.2. Instruction  18  will  apply  only  to  Races  1,  2,  4  and  5.  Use  of  engine  in  Race  3  will  not  be  permitted  and  any  boat  using  her  engine  shall   retire.   18.3. For   calculation   purposes   the   total   time   the   engine   is   used   will   be   multiplied   by   one   and   a   half   times   and   that   time   will   be   known   as   the   "Penalty  Time".  The  Penalty  Time  will  be  added  to  the  boat’s  actual  Elapsed  Time  to  arrive  at  the  "Elapsed  Time,  Engine  Adjusted",  and   that  time  will  be  used  to  calculate  the  Corrected  Time  for  a  result.   18.4. The   Race   Committee   reserves   the   right   to   increase   the   Penalty   Time   at   its   discretion   if   in   its   opinion   the   engine   has   been   used   excessively,  unnecessarily,  or  to  propel  the  boat  at  speeds  beyond  that  considered  to  be  appropriate.   18.5. Any  boat  that  uses  an  engine  for  propulsion  under  instruction  18  beyond  a  maximum  time  of  6  hours  will  not,  for  purposes  of  result   computation,  rank  above  any  boat  that  does  not  use  an  engine  at  all.

For  each  class  the  Protest  Time  Limit  is  90  minutes  after  the  last  boat  in  the  protesting  boat’s  class  finishes  the  last  race  scheduled  for   the  day.  This  changes  RRS  61.3  and  62.2.   20.4. Notices   will   be   posted   no   later   than   15   minutes   after   the   protest   time   limit   to   inform   competitors   of   hearings   in   which   they   are   parties   or  named  as  witnesses.  Hearings  will  be  held  in  the  Protest  Room,  beginning  as  soon  as  possible.   20.5.

Breaches   of   instructions   10.5,   18   and   19   will   not   be   grounds   for   a   protest   by   a   boat.   This   changes   RRS   60.1   (a).   Penalties   for   these   breaches  may  be  less  than  disqualification  if  the  protest  committee  so  decides.
