What the umpires saw:
* Before the start Blue was sailing down wind on port tack.
* Yellow completed a tack onto starboard , reached a collision course at position 3
* Blue did nothing until position 3 and gybed in position 4.
* Yellow had to alter her course in position 4 to avoid a collision.
Rules applicable: Rule 10 and 15
Blue keeps clear and Yellow has to give room, which she does
No rules broken, no penalty; Green/White Flag
