During an umpired team race, the umpires observe that a competitor failed to round one of the marks.
The new NSC scoring rule says that the Race Committee shall score a boat NSC if she does not sail the course. Is the umpire’s observation that the mark was missed sufficient to conclude that the boat didn’t sail the course or does the Race Committee have to observe this independently. I don’t believe that the umpire is part of Race Committee.
If not then a black flag and hearing are still required
