We have now implemented a specific form to support arbitration. The Hearing Decision panel provides a tab to record the arbitration details, including whether arbitration is appropriate, and the details of what was agreed upon by the parties. The arbitration panel provides input to the hearing decision form so the results are properly displayed on the final decision. The competitors are of course notified via email/sms etc., just as they would be for any other decision. The scorer is also provided the arbitration decision on the scoring panel (as part of hearing decisions). You can begin to use the Arbitration panel by selecting it as one of the settings when you create or edit an event. Note, we have implemented this and other features as a benefit to the Patrons of RacingRulesOfSailing.org. If you wish to use them, you should become a Patron
. Thanks to Claudio Uras (ITA) for brain storming this feature.
