The 2019 PHRF BC Fall Appeals Meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 19, 2019, at 1930hrs at West Vancouver Yacht Club. 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 Friday November 15, 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, Friday, November 15 2019. Late applications will be held for consideration at the 2020 Spring Appeals session.

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. If an appellant or representative cannot attend the hearing please notify the BC Sailing office no later than November 15, 2019.

Appeals for hearing will be posted on the BC Sailing website (as above) as early as possible. 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 Friday, November 15/19.

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