Re: dnf because of county police boat?

It sounds more like "improper speed close to another vessel", rather than "improper speed" per se. It also sounds a bit like the cops thought there was going to be a collision, got a little pissed, and went after the sailboat for anything they could think of. Depending on how close the sailboat cut it, I might be pissed too. Face it, racing boats are still obligated to follow the COLREGS, or Inland Rules, as the case may be.
Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
