Protests and Appeals

Directions for filing a protest can usually be found in the Sailing Instructions for a regatta. If you need a Protest Form, you can download one from the US Sailing website HERE.

Do you need help assembling a Protest Committee? The YRA can put you in contact with area Judges and Race Officers who are always willing to sit on a Protest Committee. Call or email the YRA office and we will assist you in filling out your committee.

If you believe a protest committee made an error in interpreting the rules when hearing your protest, you have the option of filing an appeal with our local Appeals Committee. Please visit US Sailing’s “How to File and Appeal” page for information on how to file.
