Re: dnf because of county police boat?

A sailboat in a race will maneuver much much closer than someone who is not in a race or a racer.
Many cross tacking situations the give way boat will miss the stern of the stand on vessel by just a foot or two. It's normal in racing but freaks the non racers out.

I guess the cops don't know nothing about racing.

Stupid of them.
The racer should take it to court.
