10 boat protest

farr 40We heard that on Friday of the Farr 40 West Coast Champs in Santa barbara, there was a 10 boat protest for one incident. Yes, 10 boats!

Apparently Enfant Terrible on port did not tack right away when asked to by leeward boats  in order to give way for oncoming starboard boats. The result was a huge pile up with multiple collisions. Thankfully, no one sustained too much damage, and no one was injured seriously on any boats. ET  did their turn, but apparently in the protest room they were not thrown out but held responsible for all the damage. We hear some people are really pissed off about the whole thing.
ET went on to win the regatta…
