ESC has adopted the RYA Charter.  
What does this mean?

You, as a competitor, should expect:

  • To be provided with racing that is fair, enjoyable and safe.
  • To receive services that conform to RYA guidelines.
  • To be able to inform the Club when services are not to an acceptable standard.
  • To have prompt services to resolve any dispute.

For your part, you will be expected to:

  • Show courtesy and respect to other competitors, officials and other users of the water.
  • Compete in compliance with the rules.
  • Use the provided services to resolve any disputes.

Should you be involved in a dispute you will be able to choose to have an advisory or a mediation hearing rather than a full protest hearing.  These are simpler and less formal ways of resolving disputes.  The Club will be appointing advisors and mediators for them shortly.

The Club has nominated the RO on any day to liaise with competitors and to feed back their comments to the Sailing Committee.

The Charter is printed on a flyleaf to the RRS.  Further details are available in leaflets in the Clubhouse and on the RYA website.
