SI Amendment 9/11/2020 10:00 AM
1.Use of navigational running lights is mandatory for all competing vessels after sunset. Boats who do not comply shall be notified either by a competitor, or the RC. This gives the competitor opportunity (at the time, on the water) to correct navigational lighting by replacing batteries or installing a backup light. If the competitor does not repair lights, a protest can be pursued. The Race Committee has the right to score DSQ without a formal protest hearing.
2. All boats are required to have a working VHF.
