Re: Curious what you all think of this video

If both fleets were part of the same regatta, then some of the blame has to lie with race management for laying out overlapping courses.

Having said that, the Melges could have gybed early rather than charging through the Opti mark rounding. The reality is, as obnoxious as it may seem, they were within their rights to go in there provided they did not foul any right of way boats. If they DID foul someone, they should be punted from the race.
