At 11:38 Albervita passed starboard and then going height to keep clear from Batboat. From that moment Duffy did anything to keep clear. This is the reason why Nadeo assigned the 18.2.a. In any case I had no evidence from Duffy of being protested nor there is evidence in the screenshot provided by Duffy; therefore the protest should be invalid anyhow.

Facts at topmark :
> Duffy entering the zone on STB.
> Albervita entering the zone on port.
> Albervita tacks in zone and didn't keept clear to Duffy
> Duffy receives RRS18.2.a from Albervita
> Albervita accepts pen cancel and he doesn't do 360

Decision :
> Duffy's explanation ACCEPTED
> Albervita DSQ for breaking RRS13
> No further action

Information :
According MLS Rule :
Since a Penalty Cancel Request actually concerns a penalty, albeit the penalty is given by the Nadeo unpire, the PC will look at the whole situation and may disqualify any boat involved which has broken a rule.

Just a final comment on this case.

Quote from "MLS Rules & Regulations":
"Since a Penalty Cancel Request actually concerns a penalty, albeit the penalty is given by the Nadeo unpire, the PC will look at the whole situation and may disqualify any boat involved which has broken a rule. A separate protest in the chat should NOT be hailed in these cases."
