Results of Open race 1 protest appeal

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.
