Shortened Course

If we shorten the course and a slower boat races a shorter course than other boats in mixed fleet handicap racing, we adjust the finish time as if the slower boat sailed the full distance. 

If we shorten the course and a slower boat races a shorter course than other boats of the same make and model, the boat that sails the shorter course will be scored behind all boats that sail the longer course. 

Protests

A racer intending to file a protest must report their intention to the race committee before the warning signal of the subsequent race, or before the race committee leaves their station for shore if the incident occurred during the final race of the day.
