Penalty Turn Contact Between Boats
There has been some discussion on the MYA forum recently about the correct course of action in the event that a boat doing a penalty turn contacts another boat, which led Peter Sutton of the Broads RYC to seek clarification from the RYA. The RYA’s reply can be found by clicking on Ruling.
Please note that all of the RYA’s reply has been posted because it contains a disclaimer concerning what the ruling of a protest committee might be.
Our thanks to Peter Sutton for bringing this to our attention.

(This document was originally sent to all MYA Official measurers but is now made available to a wider audience)
Dear Official Measurer,
Over the last several months IRSA (previously known as RSD) and IOMICA have issued several changes to the documents you need as an Official Measurer.
Unfortunately neither organisation spread the news widely and we are all expected to find it on their websites. The MYA tech team has taken this up with IRSA Tec committee chairman Val Provoost and we hope to be informed directly in future. They are all listed here with links to enable you to find them easily. If the links do not work just copy them into your browser address window. Please pick out the ones for the classes that you measure and download them from the links given.
Should you need further help please contact your District Senior Measurer (Henry Farley).
