In continuation from Q&A 2009-020, this one is again about a three boat situation at a mark. This time at a windward mark.
The questions are about the rights a boat has, while sailing on a proper course as inside boat, while having mark-room from a second boat, in regards to a third. Download the ISAF Q&A 2009-025 here.
In contrast to Q&A 2009-024 these answers are pretty straightforward.
In both scenarios rule 18 does not apply between the boat with mark-room from a second boat, towards a third. Therefore al normal rules apply including restrictions under 15 and 16.
I’m taking both Q&A’s (024 & 025) with me to a presentation I’m giving to a group of sailors tomorrow evening. To see how they react to these – in my opinion fairly frequently occurring – scenarios.
And it isn’t Angelo’s Protest Diagram Kit v2.doc.
Does anybody recognize the program these diagrams are made with?
