1.) RC erred in all oral instructions giving changes in course and/or finish line prior to the first warning signal, and in not displaying the course board.
2.) RRS 90.2(c) was broken by RC. CORA rule #9 was broken by RC. CORA SI #4 was broken.
3.) Therefore, under RRS 62.1(a), redress will be granted to boat "Destiny" because of an act and an omission of the RC which caused boats to finish improperly at the Carolina Yacht Club dock. Boat, "English Beat"'s request for redress is denied..
In accordance with RRS 64.2, boats that finished at the Carolina Yacht Club dock shall be scored as finished at that location. Boats that finished at "BP" and G"1" finish line shall be scored as they finished at that location. This will result in multiple same place finishes in each class. The RC is directed to rescore the race in accordance with above, and provide the redress committee with those final score prior to posting.
