Extending the alternatives to protesting
As part of the implementation of the RYA charter by the club, we make provision for using the Exoneration Penalty, Arbitration Hearings, Advisory hearings and Protest hearings. The aim to hold Advisory and Arbitration hearings after sailing and ultimately speed up resolution and promote learning and a better respect of the rules.
