Cool Rules Brainteaser

The following situation takes place in open water on the Great Lakes outside of any marked channel.
A sailboat on the starboard tack is overtaking a power boat. Another sailboat on the port tack is to leeward of the others, and approaching from two points off the bow of the power boat. All vessels are on a course that will cause them to collide at the same location.
Under the inland rules which is the most priviledged vessel?
