Have to agree with you there old mate. I should however impress on anyone reading back through the thread that my contribution to that throwdown was before I was elevated to the ruling class, became all high and mighty and probably boring with it. Oh well.

PS - If only cruisers knew the rules like racers know the rules. You can learn a lot from racers.[/QUOTE]


Haha, I resemble that remark...

I'm still trying to learn where I might find the term " Running Free" in Colregs, US sailing RRS, or the ISAF sailing rules. Can you point me a source other than Harvey Mudd ?

I've never come across "Running Free" in any of the rules...unless it's the synonym of "Going Commando"...then I'm always following that rule, right of way or not (oh, and let's just say the "boom" is typically to port...heh-heh).
