Trying to hit a moving mark

So what happens when a boat half-way down the pack hits the mark, snags it and drags it a couple of hundred yards in the opposite direction while the boat drifts, before finally managing to get it free? It completely split the race in half as the people further back who were on nice lines to the mark suddenly found themselves fighting a strong current and a moving mark.
