But I can still threaten my crew with a tea-bagging, right? 

What if I shout 'get tea-bagged' at another boat?

Depends which definition of tea-bagging you are using....

Not sure about other clubs ? But in last 10 years I haven't heard any bad language or or abusive sexual innuendo.

Wasn’t there a situation quite recently at a youth event, where the parent bad mouthed an official that resulted in junior getting disqualified?

Chances are, if it is banter between boats there will never be a protest. If aimed in a truly unpleasant way at another boat, then it is totally wrong and should be dealt with.

And where child and young athletes are concerned officials need to get inside their idioms, metaphors and expressions, not allowing their own older biases and heuristics to dominate.

And senior officials absolutely should not blur the line between Rule 2 and Rule 69. I think that is really unhelpful with the issue you are concerned with.


Telling someone to “suck my balls” is sexual harassment. Unacceptable (and criminal) at the best of times, appalling to a minor. You cannot defend that as youth speak that old fuddyduddies don’t get.

There is a line for acceptable behaviour but that is very far from it.
