Appeals

The OS Appeals Committee considers and decides appeals from parties to a protest or redress hearing and requests for confirmation or correction from protest committees, when these have been delegated from Sail Canada.

Unlike World Sailing Cases (which are authoritative) and Sail Canada published Appeals (which are advisable to follow), the decisions published here are for informational purposes only. The Ontario Sailing Appeals Committee does not review or correct decisions made using previous rules from previous years.

How to appeal or request confirmation or correction:

Refer to Appendix R in The Racing Rules of Sailing, including Sail Canada Prescriptions, 2021–2024, for the procedures to follow.

Appeals and requests for confirmation or correction are to be delivered to Sail Canada. When there is an association appeals committee, such as the Ontario Sailing Appeals Committee, Sail Canada may delegate the appeal or request to that body. Decisions of the Ontario Sailing Appeals Committee may be further appealed to Sail Canada. The decisions of Sail Canada are final.

Appeals and requests may be delivered to Sail Canada by e-mail. In fact, this is the preferred method as it speeds up the process considerably. The e-mail address for delivering appeals and requests to Sail Canada is sailcanada@sailing.ca. There is no fee for making an appeal or request.
