(1) A very well organised and inclusive event by the organising committee. One boat requested dispensation to use additional side tank padding for medical reasons as the helm had mobility issues being physically challenged. This was approved by the PRO. Members of the OA from the class and the host club were also competitors in the event. The class was happy to see more youth participation at this Worlds as it was a class that was traditionally mainly sailed by the adult seniors.

(2) The OA sought approval with the local MNA, Australian Sailing, for a properly constituted International Jury, and was properly granted before the event.

(3) All 107 boats started together on a two-part starting line with the RC signal vessel in the middle. The preparatory signal for the first attempt of the start was with code flag “P”.

(4) Most of the boats that were penalised on the water for RRS 42 either came to the Jury boat on the water or met with the Jury on shore after racing for an explanation. Some of the competitors expressed disappointment with the judges’ observations and decisions on penalising them for RRS 42.

(5) App T applied. Arbitration helped to solve one of the five cases without going to a full hearing. - SGPJN1
