Yachting: Extension granted in Oracle boat tampering case

An extension has been granted in the International Sailing Federation case on the Oracle boat tampering issue.

ISAF commissioners are due to hear the case of kiwis Matt Mitchell and Andrew Walker, who were punished last year after an investigation into the illegal modification of boats used in warm-up regattas.

All parties have been given an extension to submit their evidence to ISAF for a variety of reasons.

The ISAF commissioners won’t look at the case until they have all the submissions later this month, with a decision then expected to be made within a month.

An independent report commissioned by Yachting new Zealand found that neither Mitchell or Walker should face any further punishment for their roles.

But ISAF can still sanction the sailors, including suspension from sailing.
