Protest time limit that crosses over to the next day.

The SI specifies that the protest time limit for a passage race is 5 hours after the last boat finishes. The last boat finishes at 2100hrs which means PTL is 0200hrs the next day. How do I put in the protest time limit that crosses over to the next day?

It is still 5 hours after the last boat finishes. Have I missed something?

Martin,
When you enter the protest time limit in racingrulesofsailing.org which , if 2am the next day is the format 02:00, the Protest Time Limit timer thinks it is 2am on the same day and will display a countdown of 00:00:00 as if PTL is over on the night before the expiry of protest time limit. The protest time limit actually ends 2am the following day.

What if you try to put in a time of 26.00?

If you enter 26:00 it reports a format error

OK, that was not clear in the question. Pass on this one.

You should set the date for the appropriate day and enter 02:00.

Hi Paul,
I changed the date and put in the appropriate time but the dashboard reports under Protest Time Limits section... "None Today"

Yes.  That makes sense.  It won't show there until midnight.

Well, at least the print version is correct with date and time and can be posted. Thanks Paul.

Well, actually, it doesn't make sense.  There is a pending protest time limit today expiring tomorrow.  I'm not sure how common this might be though.  I suppose in distance races it might be.  You are correct, the printed post will display it correctly. I'll make a note and if I can think of a simple solution, I'll fix it.
