Re: Americas cup triple touch penalty to Kiwi's

As soon as the leeward boat gains an overlap they become the right of way boat, and the windward boat has to keep clear.the leftward boat can then luff up and windward has to go with them. Windward can not come back down until leftward bears off. ETNZe came down to them and bumped them. I suspect they had very little steerage because both boats were almost stopped.
