Some AYC regattas provide for scoring penalties in place of, or in addition to, the penalties available to a boat on the water. The AYC Frostbite and Wednesday Night Racing events typically replace the Turns Penalty with the Scoring Penalty and require the competitor to complete a Penalty Acceptance Form. In most other events, a scoring penalty is available to a boat after finishing but before the start of a protest hearing that concerns the incident.
You can download the AYC Penalty Acceptance Form by clicking on the link below. The completed form must be delivered to the AYC Front Desk or to the location stated in the sailing instructions before the appropriate time limit.
