The 2019 PHRF BC Spring Vancouver Island Appeals Meeting will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019, at 1230hrs at Sidney North-Saanich YC.  All PHRF BC certificate holders who wish to appeal the rating of their yachts or their competitor’s yachts are invited to make a written application on or before 1200hrs Monday March 4, 2019.

Appeal forms can be found on the BC Sailing website (www.bcsailing .bc.ca/ pages/racing – click PHRF).  A completed Appeal Form with all supporting documentation as outlined on the form must be received at the BC Sailing offices by mail, email or fax no later than 1200 hrs, Monday March 4, 2019.  Late applications will be held for consideration at the 2019 Spring Appeals session held in Vancouver, BC.

Please limit the reason and explanation for the appeal to 2 pages.

Appeals received without a complete set of race results will not be accepted.  Complete results means all races – no cherry picking. Please DO NOT include the entire regatta’s results – your division is sufficient. 

 An appellant or their representative will be required to present their appeal to the Handicappers Committee.

Appeals for hearing will be posted on the BC Sailing website (as above) on Tuesday March 5/19.  This will be the only notice given that an appeal has been received for hearing.  Please contact BC Sailing if your appeal does not appear on the website by March 5, 2019.

All competitors are welcome to attend the Appeals Meeting and comment on any Appeal applications.  Documentation in support of comments is recommended.
