What has the Norwegian Finn been up to? First he's gets a DNE from one protest and now it looks like he's got another protest hearing from the Jury at midnight. Hope they've put the coffee requests in for tommorow.

Probably the keel fairing or something, at a guess.

Whatever the Norwegian has done it isn't good, that's a rule 69....
The non discardable comes from the Rule 2 (Fair Sailing) infringement.
I'm guessing he lost the plot then...

Looks like he wasn't happy with the earlier decision and may have done something he will regret ...

Hmm...not like he was having a great regatta anyway..but he'd come 3rd behind ben & scheidt in savannah, so not exactly a duff yotter..

Interestingly though he's currently been scored a DNE in respect of the protest. - which is from breaching RRS 2. I would guess he probably shoved the other boat off backwards in the heat of the moment (or similar) which would probably breach 2 which is probably why the committee want to give him a 69..

Probably be time to be looking up the times for flights home...

112 info request is indeed interesting - but we will never know. No TV pictures and no GPS. Getting redress isn't going to be easy - - it never is.

It does look as if the NOR Finn has lost the plot - and what happened to the GRE Finn - has he had enough?
Like some other things - sailing is more enjoyable when you do it with someone else
