Re: Americas cup triple touch penalty to Kiwi's

Before the start signal, a boat establishing an overlap from behind and leeward (aka a "hook") has the right to bring the windward boat head to wind and hold it there (caveat must give windward boat opportunity to get clear). After the start signal, the leeward boat must bear away to proper course.

Rules are here http://www.sailing.org/tools/documen...5B13376%5D.pdf

Cheers
