I have made my own penalty and protest flags but they are triangular in shape (made from bunting). Is this ok please?

The Racing Rules no longer specify any shape for a protest flag (and never did for a yellow one). As the reason for either flag is to inform the other boats involved in the incident of your intentions it needs to be "conspicuous" - so just make sure that it is large enough to be seen. Donít forget that you also still need to inform the Race Committee and fill out written forms (see Sailing Instructions 14 and 15)
