So we all now know what most people would have suspected for a while.
 
No further action against Ben and recommendations to the ISAF in the official report about conduct/management of media boats during events.

No doubt Ben was pleased to find out King Kenny was Chair of the Tribunal Wink

Interesting that in the photograph of the press boat the crew do not seem to be wearing bouyancy aids.

I see the Aussies have accepted the RYA's adjudication, and it's now just for ISAF to either rubber stamp this to close the issue or do something insane.

Unlikely that they will do anything insane given that both national authorities are 'happy' with the current status of things....

ISAF Executive Statement

The ISAF Executive Committee has met to consider the reports from the International Jury of the Perth 2011 ISAF Sailing World Championships and the RYA Tribunal. The role of ISAF under Racing Rule of Sailing 69.2(a) is to first determine whether or not it is appropriate to conduct a further hearing into the reports received.
The Executive Committee has reviewed the decisions of the International Jury and the RYA Tribunal, the video evidence of the incident, other relevant documentation from Perth and has taken legal advice. Mr Ainslie was asked to comment and did so.
The Executive Committee supports the decision and the report of the International Jury and the report of the RYA Tribunal that found that Mr Ainslie committed Gross Misconduct and believes that the penalties imposed to date are appropriate. Accordingly, ISAF does not regard it as appropriate to conduct a further hearing into the incident and no further action will therefore be taken.

The issue of Media Boats is a separate matter from the decision issued today. The ISAF Media policies were clear and the issue of adherence will be considered separately.


Reckon he can consider himself bloody lucky...

Does that mean that ISAF will exonerate themselves from any irresponsible permissions or actions from press or media boats? Ben was out of order and he knows it but also ISAF were wrong and my guess is that they don't know it, arrogance?

 

IMHO ISAF, or their appointed official representatives, should not be above or outside the rules. Certainly they should never allow themselves to be in a position to have an effect on the outcome of any race.

Do you think we will get photos of everyone bar Ben at the Olympics as a protest from the media?!
