RACE OFFICE


This is electronic home of the Annapolis Yacht Club Race Office.   Most regattas at Annapolis Yacht Club support electronic submission of protests, requests for redress, penalty acceptances, and scoring inquiries - but check the sailing instructions of specific events.  Usually, you can download a form by clicking on the relevant link and then submit the completed form electronically by email to raceoffice@annapolisyc.org.

Penalty Acceptance Form
Post-Race
 
(for events other than WNR and Frostbite)
At most other AYC regattas, you may be able take a post-race penalty when you did not take an appropriate penalty at the time of the incident (under RRS Appendix T or V).   To do so, you should will need to submit a standard Penalty Acceptance Form.

Protest or Request for Redress Form

A protest is an allegation that a boat has broken a rule. See the definition Protest in the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS).  Similarly, a request for redress is a claim that a boat's score was made worse by an error of the race committee (and others).  

Both require a form to be submitted in writing and it can be the same form.  You should consult your rulebook, especially RRS 61 and 62 for guidance on how do this right.  

Paper copies of the forms are usually available at the Front Desk of AYC's Main Clubhouse (2 Compromise Street) and at the Committee Room/Race Office on the 3rd deck of the new Sailing Center (510 Severn Avenue).  SI's may state other locations.   Note that the hours when the Race Office at the Sailing Center is open is still evolving.  Typically, it will be open during the typical post-race protest filing periods for regattas.
