Match Racing Umpire Manual says:
"If one of the boats in a match requests redress because of procedural matters or the conditions on the water, it is important to always include the other skipper as a party in that hearing"
"A party to a hearing is
a) for a protest hearing: a protestor, a protestee
b) for a request for redress: a boat requesting redress or for which redress is requested, a race committee acting rule 60.2(b), a technical committee acting under rule 60.4(b)
c) for a request for redress under rule 62.1(a): the body alleged to have made an improper action or omission
Since Appendix C does not change the definition "Party", what is the correct way to proceed?
