were he asked a question about RRS 18 and approaching to start.
In response I received an Email from Mike B, which I think merits a post on its own. He included the following text and picture:
I basically agree but you have to be careful with the wording.
What of the situation here shown as attached!
Here you cannot say the inside boat has no right to right to room in the initial position. It has the mark on the correct side, but cannot be approaching to start till it is in the correct tack (gybe) to enable it to do so.
What do you think?
Yes, I am to curious about your opinion, so please leave your comments.
