The Comanche protest.

 

Bad sportsmanship, a complete waste of time or just the way Yanks do business?

Were there any real rules broken  ?

 

(Long time W.O. XI fan would like the protest dismissed. )

Comanche is now Australian owned and crewed.

 

There was no need for Wild Oats to do such a monover especialy in a long distance race and WO had boat speed on Comanche in the Harbour. Lot of speculation about right or wrong,so just wait and see what the jury decide.

Wild Oats = dumb. 

Dumb for blatant infringement of port / starboard and water rules. 

Dumb for not acknowledging it. 

Dumb for saying that video shows no dumbness. 

Dumb for not doing 360 or 720 turn to expiate. 

Dumb dumb dumb.

After seeing the vision (and knowing nothing about the rules) it's blatantly obvious WO11 was in the wrong and should have been penalised.

Wild oats management would have done the same thing if roles were reversed.

 

God the ABC news coverage was bad but at least they had an expert commentary following up to correct all the inaccurate crap the 13yr old reporter was spewing forth from Hobart

ABC radio has got really uninformed since most of the usual presenters left for a break.
