About Clubs United
Clubs United is a race format across club borders. The purpose of CU is to create an alternative to public NPC racing, for those who like to to sail under the full RRS togheter with like minded sailors. The races will be identified with a race name tag, which makes it easy for everyone to see what races are hosted according to their preferences. Some races will be hosted without a password. Anyone can join these races, but are encouraged to follow the race rules (ref the section below). Some races will be hosted with a password and only members of the united clubs should join these races.
1. Do only request a penalty cancellation if you are sure that the penalty you got was wrong. If in doubt, be fair and take your penalty turn.
2. Approve all requests for penalty cancellations unless you are absolutely sure that a penalty was right. Do never ignore the request. Answer yes/no (approve/refuse).
3. If you know you have broken a rule, then you should take a penalty (even if nobody is protesting on you, and even if VSK does not give a penalty to you).
Stating facts from the VSK Umpire:
If the VSK umpire gives a penalty for rule 11, 12, 15, 16, or 18, it should be considered there has been contact between the two boats.
You are not winning anything by winning the race if you're not winning others appreciation.
