I did everything possible to give room “I am / You are at the zone, “Mark Room / No Mark Room” “I doubt it / No doubt” Outside / clear astern gives mark-room (Forever–unless outside tacks or leaves the zone) Taking mark room you deserve means not having to say “you’re sorry” for breaking 10, 11, 12, 13, 15, or 16. Inside r-o-w must gybe if that’s her proper course “You’re Excused” Exoneration

27 27 18 KEEP CLEARGIVE ROOM Can I go in there? It Depends

28 28 Rule 18 MARK-ROOM Preamble – “… does not apply at a starting mark surrounded by navigable water or at its anchor line, from the time boats are approaching them to start until they have passed them.” It Depends 18 KEEP CLEARGIVE ROOM 1 st It Depends – Are you approaching the starting line to start? 2 nd It Depends – When BLUE sticks her bow in, is there room for her to pass through?

29 29 2 nd It Depends – When BLUE sticks her bow in, is there room for her to pass through? You be the judge We think no. Can BLUE pass through?

30 30 2 nd It Depends – When BLUE sticks her bow in, is there room for her to pass through? You be the judge We think no. Can BLUE pass through?

31 31 2 nd It Depends – When BLUE sticks her bow in, is there room for her to pass through? You be the judge We think yes. Can BLUE pass through?

32 32 2 nd It Depends – When BLUE sticks her bow in, is there room for her to pass through? You be the judge We think yes. Can BLUE pass through?

33 33 WINDWARD 1 The classic Port - Starboard

34 34 KEEP CLEARGIVE ROOM

35 35 At the protest hearing YELLOW says …

36 36 At the protest hearing BLUE says …

37 37 KEEP CLEARGIVE ROOM YELLOW says … BLUE says … You probably know the answer. The “why” may surprise you. Who is most likely to sway the protest committee? Who has the onus? Preponderance of the evidence (or the balance of probabilities). Hear all the evidence. -- Weigh the evidence. -- Whichever has more weight – 49% / 51% In this case starboard is usually in a better position to see the situation develop and determine whether she needs to change course to avoid a collision, so her evidence is given more weight.

38 38 WINDWARD 2 The tactics of a duck

39 39 KEEP CLEARGIVE ROOM Let’s duck YELLOW and go right. Let’s slam dunk BLUE and also go right

47 47 WINDWARD 3 Piggy In The Middle

48 48 KEEP CLEARGIVE ROOM 20 Hailing for room to tack. Rule 20 – “When approaching an obstruction, a boat may hail for room to tack and avoid a boat on the same tack. …” RED, Give me room to tack please. (a)Be required to make a substantial alteration of course to miss the obstruction (b)Be sailing a close hauled course (c)The obstruction is not a mark. (d)Hail (what?) (e)Give the hailed boat time to respond (f)After hailed boat responds, must tack ASAP BLUE, Please keep clear. BLUE must: Okay. Here I go. What happens if BLUE does not really need to tack? RED must respond (and protest).

49 49 RED is now at a big disadvantage. She is the leeward boat on pinned stbd tack. Does she have a better response?

50 50 RED, Give me room to tack please. BLUE, Please keep clear. Okay, YOU TACK Okay, YOU TACK What? ‘YOU TACK’ Rule 20.2(c) “The hailed boat shall … tack ASAP, (Response Option #2) by immediately replying ‘You tack’ ….” or

54 54 You be the judge BLUE is approaching the stbd tack lay line ahead of YELLOW When BLUE falls off to a close hauled course YELLOW is 1/4 boat length behind BLUE tacks

55 55 You be the judge BLUE is approaching the stbd tack lay line ahead of YELLOW When BLUE falls off to a close hauled course YELLOW is 1/4 boat length behind YELLOW is going faster and overtakes BLUE and luffs above close hauled to avoid her and protests. BLUE tacks
