If any boat is in serious difficulty and requires assistance, the nearest boat will be expected to stand by and assist if possible until the arrival of the Safety Boat.
Failure to comply with any of the above safety requirements by competitors will constitute grounds for protest and possible disqualification by the Race Committee.
