On 15 April the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) referred to the ISAF Race Officials Committee (ROC) reports from the ISAF-appointed International Jury Chairman and the ISAF-appointed Principal Race Officer for the 33rd America's Cup.
Yesterday 27 May, ISAF sent the Findings and Report of the ISAF Race Officials Committee with regard to the 33rd America's Cup together with all attachments referred to in the Report to the Société Nautique de Genève and the Golden Gate Yacht Club.
The completion of Regatta Report Forms is a standard requirement of Principal Race Officers, International Jury Chairmen and Chief Umpires at international or major events.
The purpose of the report system is to provide an assessment of the ISAF appointed officials and to learn from incidents or exceptional situations that happened during an event. Several changes to The Racing Rules of Sailing and changes in the ISAF Race Official Manuals have been made as a result of situations described in Regatta Report Forms.
The report includes clear recommendations and the ISAF Executive Committee will appoint the necessary working parties to determine whether and what changes may be needed to be made to the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing and the ISAF Regulations in light of the findings of the report.
