ISAF Sailing World Championships – Further to the Ben Ainslie Rule 69 incident the RYA is awaiting the report from the International Jury, of the Perth 2011 Worlds, in order to consider what further action, if any, to take. The RYA will follow its established procedures for responding to Rule 69 reports.

The process involves the report being considered by the Chairman of the RYA, the Chairman of the RYA Racing Committee and the Chairman of the RYA Tribunal, who will decide whether the matter should be referred to the RYA Tribunal for further action.
If the matter is referred to the RYA Tribunal, then it is likely that a hearing will take place as soon as is reasonably possible, following which the RYA Tribunal has the authority to take such disciplinary action within its jurisdiction as it considers appropriate.
