Request for Redress
Nationality: United States of America
This is a protest and request for redress by Yellow against Blue.
Green is not identified on the protest form.
Neither Blue nor Yellow can identify Green.
Yellow states she had to crash gybe to avoid green at position 3.
Blue states she was 1 1/2 to 2 boat lengths away when Green gybed and intended to keep clear.
Yellow's crash gybe broke the goose neck on her boat and she could not continue to race.
Blue finished the race and neither Blue nor Green took a penalty.
