Re: Know the rules!
And whats your plan if the other skipper panics and does and emergency tack at the last second? He's supposed to trust the safety of his family to you, who he's never met? Better to leave some room for comfort, I say.
But that is what they say - " I was going to pass behind you!"
To which I answer " You weren't doing a very good job of it!"
