Using the Discretionary Penalty Policy, a starting penalty of 5% was decided.
The penalty was decreased because the boat was presented in the same conditions during pre event equipment inspections and was approved by the technical committee and because the technical committee admitted that the infringement does not give any competitive advantage to the boat.
There were no facts to justify increasing the penalty.
ITA 12492 is penalized. A penalty of 1% applied to all races of the day, calculated to the nearest tenth of a point, (0.05 to be rounded upward), but not worse than the score for DNF.
