The ICRA National Championships protest committee has listed eight protests so far at the Dublin Bay event but four claims were withdrawn, according to the event website.

Of the remaining protests at the Royal St. George Yacht Club, two were initiated by the Protest Committee itself chaired by International Race Judge Gordon Davies.

On Friday, in Division Zero, a protest (case number two) was taken by on the water umpire Ailbe Millerick against respondents Yoyo (Brendan Coughlan) and Sail No. 7536 (John O'Gorman) in which a post-race penalty was accepted by 7536, according to the case decisions published here.

And in another class zero protest, a request for redress has been submitted after yesterday's coastal race for yachts Tsunami and Yoyo. 

The official noticeboard says that hearing (case number nine) initiated by the Race Committee is 'to be heard as soon as possible after racing'.
