The results of the Open Race #1 protest heard on Sept 19 were appealed. The Lake Michigan Sail Racing Federation (LMSRF) Appeals Committee analyzed the proceedings of the Columbia Yacht Club Protest Committee for an incident during race 1 of the MORF Open (September 15, 2018). They reported on November 14 with a ruling which concluded:
It is the Appeals Committee judgment that the Facts Found of the PC supports their Decision and the appeal is dismissed.
I have the full report if anyone wishes to see it.
The hearings for two protests from the first race of the 2018 MORF Open were held last night, Tuesday September 18, at the Burnham Park Yacht Club. The results are as follows: RAVN withdrew their protest; Ohana’s protest was disallowed. The race results remain unchanged from those posted on the website.
