For everybody who is finding their way in the new section C, the presentation gave a schematic flow-chart to find the appropriate rule. When I first started translating this in Dutch to use in a presentation, I discovered there should be an additional question. Rule 19 can be applicable for boats that approach the line to start!
So I revised the flow chart to include that question and here's the result
I'm also including the Dutch translation:
We will no doubt have protest about boats approaching the first line of boats at a starting line from astern. The discussion if the windward boat will be able to give room, might be difficult, but must somehow be resolved. Mike B already predicted a Black flag chaos: RRS 2009-2012; Rule 19 Room to Pass an Obstruction
What do you think? Any comments on the diagrams are welcome.
