    Different classes? What kind of boats? Are they windsurfers?
    Fleet racing? Match racing? Team racing?
    Before prep, during a race or perhaps after finishing?
    Near a mark, at the start or in a leg of the course? Near a shore or other obstructions?

    ROW rules: one of four: 10 Port-Starboard/ 11 Windward-Leeward/ 12 Clear ahead - Clear astern/ 13 Tacking (one or both)

  3. Limits - Obligations?
    Rules 14, 15, 16 and 17: limitations on ROW-boat and obligations on Keep-clear boat, or perhaps on both boats?
