2017-11-07 Manual Pens: Clarification/Amendments IMPORTANT!!!

Some amendments and clarification of when, and when not, punishment points will be added to a skipper's score. All information on this is now gathered in 'Rules' section and reads as follows:

"Skippers that comes to the pre-start in order to participate in a race, may at any time during a race, protest against another boat in the race by writing 'P Skipper Name' in the game chat. If a skipper hailing 'P Skipper Name', does not submiit a protest, the protest is not valid, or if the protest is not upheld, 1 p. will be added to his/her score.

An exception to this is if the protested skipper accepts and completes the penalty. That skipper MUST write '360 done' in the chat after he/she has taken the penalty. In this case there will be no penalty point added if the Protest Form is not sent.

Furthermore, if a skipper after reviewing the replay, finds that no rule was broken, the skipper can post in the 'Forum', within 2 hours after the last race of the day, that he/she withdraws the protest, and no penalty point will be added."
