See protest no 3 at http://www.sailing.org/olympics/london2012/results/notices/protests.php - http://www.sailing.org/olympics/london2012/results/notices/protests.php

Decision:
POL DSQ in Race 1.
UKR RDG for Race 1 - points equal to position 21.
For Race 2 - average points in all races before the last scheduled day of the opening series, except Race 2.


This seems smart to me: it largely avoids the perversion of average points redress we saw in a high profile event last summer.

Looks like they thought it through, so good decision.

Sonia Mayes (IJ) has advocated this for a while now.
