Be cool!

The DBSC Sailing instructions govern racing at DBSC alongside the Racing Rules of Sailing and the rules and by-laws of the International Laser Class Association. All club racers should be familiar with these.DBSC does not permit formal protests, as the adversarial environment this can create is inconsistent with our culture, and the time commitment this can require is unreasonable for our volunteers. The success of racing depends on an “honour system” based on the principles of good sportsmanship and adherence to the Racing Rules and the Sailing Instructions by all participants.Please be sure to familiarise yourself with the sailing rules and undertake your penalties when incidents arise. On Saturday there were a number of people hitting the top mark who did not do their penalties, and this is uncool, especially in a championship race.
