Subject: International Jury
Unfortunately, Jury member Francisco Vidal Maestre (ESP) has had to return home due to a family illness.
Dusan Vanický will replace him in the position of the chairman.
The International Jury will now be 4 persons as permitted by RRS N1.5.
The International Jury will have International Judges from two different national authorities and there will be no more than two from any one national authority. This means that the International Jury will remain properly constituted and there will be no appeal from its decisions.

Subject: RRS 49.2 clarification
If the international jury observes boats where the crew before and after changing tack presses the lifelines to leeward while kneeling or standing and doing so the crews´ torsos is positioned outside the lifelines, the international jury will penalize this breach.
This is not briefly to perform a necessary task, boats acting like this clearly are in breach of RRS 49.2.
See Notice of RC #2 Subject 1. as well.
