There is no way to tell what is going on here. The story keeps changing. Which mark (pin or RC) are they approaching on what tack? B can hardly be timing his start if running parallel to the line for very long.
A could be late for lots of reasons and has full rights to start, however both are racing and those rules must be followed. B may not be aware that A is in a different fleet.
It is shame that two boats can screw around and perhaps spoil the racing for others. Both must be real novices!
