According Rules 5, 6, 7: An alleged or actual breach of these rules shall be dealt with under the relevant Regulations. It shall not be grounds for a protest and Rule 63.1 does not apply. Furthermore, according Rule 60.1: A boat may protest another boat, but not for an alleged breach of a Rule of Part 2 or Rule 31, unless she was involved in or saw the incident.
What is the meaning of “an alleged breach”? Could we assume, given the wording of the Rule, that a boat may protest another boat for an actual breach of a Rule of Part 2 or Rule 31? And what could an actual breach of these Rules be?
Furthermore, according Rule 60.5: Neither a boat nor a committee may protest for an alleged breach of Rule 5, 6, 7 or 69.
Since Rules 5, 6, 7 already clearly state that Rule 63.1 does not apply for alleged or actual breaches of these Rules, is the relevant sentence in Rule 60.5, which refers only to alleged breaches, really necessary?
