RRS A6.1 is changed to “If a boat is disqualified from a race, or retires after finishing, or is scored did not sail the course, each boat with a worse finishing place shall be moved up one place”
Information - This is due to a technical detail from the change to the last rule book that no one picked up on. World Sailing is changing the rule as an Emergencey Rule Change on 1 January 2023 - We have changed it now.
It basically means races will be scored how they are expected to be scored.
If you're interested in the nitty gritty - here is the submission that was amended and approved by World Sailing https://d7qh6ksdplczd.cloudfront.net/sailing/wp-content/uploads/2022/09/16104009/026-22-RSS-JSAF-Scoring-Positions.pdf?fbclid=IwAR27cI7KRG2rtacn2Uew22DBUxizFuRVjI4dbM1JEHNN1MxAODCI6RU_gg0
