Event Description

Yacht sailing takes place in triangular courses, quadrilateral courses, M courses, and windward-leeward courses, in which the sailing boats have to race within the time limit (usually 1H 30min).
Unlike other events, which have a starting line that participants begin the race from at the signal, sailing has a virtual starting line of the main vessel (R/C vessel) and one buoy. All yachts spin around within the virtual starting line and wait for the starting signal. Yachts that start the race before the signal must return and re-start after receiving a penalty.
Starting procedures are as follows.
① Warning Signal- The class flag of the mast in the main vessel goes up, and the warning signal rings 5 minutes before the actual starting time.
② Ready Signal - The P, I, Z or black flag of the mast in the main vessel goes up and the ready signal rings 4 minutes before the actual starting time.
③ 1 Min Signal – Ready signal flags (P flag, etc.) of the mast in the main vessel go down 1 minute before the actual starting time, and a sound signal rings once.
④ Starting Signal – The class flag of the mast in the main vessel goes down, and a sound signal rings.

Determining Rank

Since sailing is influenced by various marine conditions such as the wind, tide, and wave, its results are not determined with one race alone. After numerous races, the rankings are determined with the overall scores. One to two races are held each day, with 5~12 races being held in total. The results are determined by adding all the penalty points in the races, excluding the race with the lowest achievement. Points can be calculated using either the bonus point method or the low-point method. In the bonus point method, 0 penalty points are added for 1st place, 3 for 2nd place, 5.7 for 3rd place, 8 for 4th place, 10 for 5th place, and 11.7 for 6th place. 6 penalty points are added to their ranks for 7th place and below. In the low-point method, 1 penalty point is added for 1st place, 2 for 2nd place, 3 for 3rd place, 4 for 4th place, and so forth.
Recently, the low-point method has been widely used.

Protest Committee Organization and Management

Since sailing is an event that takes place in the vast ocean, the hosting organizing committee accepts objections, allowing a protest committee to hold hearings and judgments. Here, the protest committee can take the form of a sports committee, sub-committee of the sports committee, independent protest committee or one of the judging divisions.
Any yacht that witnesses a violation of the rules can protest. Protests can be divided by type into two categories. First is a protest of a rule violation by other competitors. The other type of protest is lodged in a situation where a participant experiences disadvantages in the final rankings due to another irresistible force.
The protest committee judges whether the protest was submitted before the deadline (usually within 2 hours after the end of the race of the protesting yacht) and whether it is valid.
If valid, the committee must accept the protest and open a hearing as soon as possible.
The protest committee must allow the protesting yacht and the protested yacht to view a copy of the protesting document. It must also inform both sides of the time and location of the hearing.
The protest committee must judge based on identified facts, and carry out such measures as disqualification, penalty, relief, etc.
