Re: racing rules question narrow channel

Thats why I aborted the idea of luffing up, I give him the benefit of the doubt. I decided just concentrate on getting speed up, ready for a tack at the reeds. What bugs me the most is that if he'd...

Re: racing rules question narrow channel

-I still think that your best tactic was to duck the blue boat or duck and immediately tack over to starboard.

believe me if you were on the boat at the time you and could not see where the reeds...

Hi George,

Thanks for your input.

I think I can summize succinctly: The "sailnet racing commitee of this thread" could not reach a conclusion based on the facts presented.

Assuming that...

Re: racing rules question narrow channel

I'm watching the match races at the olympics and its incredible. Based on the way these competitors tack every 30 seconds and the way they give room, I definitely did not break any rule by tacking...

I suspect no-one else would run the administration of the 'club'. No-one is particularly enthusiastic.

They have been the core members of the club since its inception 12 years ago, it is only the...

Re: racing rules question narrow channel

Difficult to state all the facts but I tried. If he'd cause damage to the boat, I don't think his insurance company would have a leg to stand on - he had time to give room, space to give room and...
