BWR: Jury Dismisses Virbac Paprec 3 Protest as Invalid

by Barcelona World Race media

The protest of Virbac-Paprec 3 against Groupe Bel, Foncia and Hugo Boss has been dismissed as invalid by the International Jury.

Virbac-Paprec 3 alleged that the trio had passed to port of the November mark, off the entrance to Barcelona Harbour which was set as a starboard hand mark.

The International Jury dismissed the protest because Virbac-Paprec 3 failed to inform the three boats of her intention to protest as required by RRS 61.3, SI 15.2.1(a).

The protest is therefore declared invalid.
