Protest Flag no longer required for fleet races

At the AGM held at Worser Bay the NZIODA Committee have changed the class policy regarding the requirement to display the red flag when protesting in fleet races and decided that no protest flag will required.

The sailing instruction which deleted rule 61.1(a)(2) will no longer be used so that a red flag is no longer required to make a valid protest. However, the need to inform the race committee at the finish of an intention to protest and the sail number of the protested boat, remains.
