Maritime Conditions and Ferries

Unfortunately on the Saturday of the Eaton Cup there were two incidents with Manly Ferries. Both incidents were subject to reports and resulted in RSYS being asked to shift the race course. Maritime was present in our course area for the day and five boats were disqualified.

Compliance with RMS requirements is absolute. As result of these events, RSYS, with the support of the Fleet, will in future events score boats DNE for a failure to comply with RMS requirements in relation to Ferries. Competitors are also reminded that Rule 2, Fair Sailing, is also in consideration where a competitor does not comply with these requirements and derives an advantage.

In addition to safety and fair sailing, we must be mindful of the implications for RSYS and its Aquatic License.
