Assume we have a 2-day weekend regatta with scheduled first warning at Noon each day with the hope of getting 3-4 races off each day. Day 1 is a washout due to severe weather and no racing is done Day 1. Day 2 winds are looking good in the morning, but are predicted to die in the afternoon. The RC/OA really want to try to get some races in early, but neither the NOR or SI state a time-limit before which changes in the SI's or schedule of races shall be posted to the Notice Board.
- Without a time-limit stated in the race documents, is there a default time limit for such changes?
- If the RC makes the changes Sunday morning at 8am, and posts this on the Official Notice Board at that time, and a couple boats miss the first start, do they have an avenue for redress?
I seem to recall something in the RRS, but I can't seem to put my finger on it. It might be that I'm just remembering guidance that I read in either the WS/US Race Management Manuals.
