The Protest Committee for the Rolex Trophy – Rating Series last night disqualified Leslie Green’s Swan 45 Ginger from race five of the event following a protest by rival yacht Quantum Racing (Ray Roberts).

The Protest Committee found that Ginger was in breach of Racing Rule 11 during a gybing incident nearing the leeward mark of the course when the spinnakers of both boats touched.  Ginger was the windward boat and was hailed to keep clear by Quantum Racing.

Quantum Racing, a DK 46, won race five on corrected time from Ginger, but with one discard race allowed in the eight race series the overall pointscore has not changed going into today’s final racing for the Rolex Trophy – Rating Series.

Quantum Racing is on 5 points after the drop race, Ginger 9 points, Wedgetail 17 points and Fuzzy Logic 19 points.
