No Appeal (Rule 70.5) Procedures

US Sailing’s Prescription to Rule 70.5(a) requires its approval if the right of appeal is to be denied in cases where “it is essential to determine promptly the result of a race that will qualify a boat to compete in a later stage of an event or a subsequent event.”

Please download the document below to read about the process by which US Sailing’s permission may be granted and the requirements an Organizing Authority and Protest Committee must comply with in order to balance the need for certainty of results while retaining competitors’ rights as much as possible.
