Protest Even if You’re Not Involved…!!

Tom has hit the nail very firmly on the head; no one wants the hassle of spending time in a protest room rather than in the bar. A prime example occurred during an event I attended recently, a clear port and starboard, witnessed by several, but the starboard tack helm just didn’t want the grief and had nothing to gain as the result would not affect him. But it did allow the port tack boat to win the series (I think), at the expense of a 3rd party, and that cowboy continues to flout the rules with gay abandon!! It is within the rules for 3rd parties to make a protest against both parties in such a situation, for failing to make a valid protest, and this it what we should start to do.
