Fleet Racing - Concrete Example Of Rules - followed or infringed...

RRS 10 reads :

When boats are on opposite tacks, a port-tack boat shall keep clear of a starboard-tack boat.

 

Analysis :

  • Port tack boat should have tacked to startboard to keep clear of starboard tack boat(s)

 

Suggestion :

Port tack boat releases her sails, slows down with a gentle & smooth little luff, let the 2 right of way boats round the mark.

She, then, can keep on her way without breaking any rule and without loosing time & ground by doing a 360° penalty turn.

 

 

Conclusion : Forsee the situation before it happens, decide your move before it's too late

 

*Note : The leeward starboard tack boat could have continue his course on starboard and not follow the red boat tacking for rounding that mark.
