Seems to me the situation is very similar.

Sorry Rick but I have to disagree. This situation is clearly a one on one, more of a match race. This is acceptable to most sailors

The incident at the I14 Worlds is more about team racing in a fleet race which is not acceptable.

Was it? wasn't it just Richardson/Barker match racing the Aussies down - where is the proof that it was anything more than that?

Rick the international jury thought there was enough evidence to say it was team racing. That is why they got penalised.

From what has been said on this forum they were guilty of team racing and they have no appeal - end of story.

Yep - well that is the opinion of the IJ & you but perhaps there are others that think this was a bit of a "stretch".

If it was team racing which is of couse banned why wern't Morrison/Rhodes peanalised for their role - the word team states that there was more than one party involved in this transgression?
