Area J Appeals

Under the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS), it is possible to appeal the decision of a protest committee per RRS 70.1. The procedure for this is set forth in the US Sailing version of Appendix F of the RRS (US Sailing has adopted a prescription that adopts an entirely new Appendix F that differs from the ISAF version).

All appeals are to be sent directly to US Sailing. However, for appeals from regattas held in Area J (see the map to the right) most appeals will initially be assigned to the appeals committee for Area J. That function is performed by the SCYA Appeals Committee. Decisions of the SCYA Appeals Committee can then be appealed further to the US Sailing Appeals Committee.
