Hello,

In my last regatta, I found myself in a pinch at the windward mark. I was approaching on a port tack. Right at the mark, I found myself having misjudged a larger fast boat''s speed. He was on starboard tack a little further off. He yelled at me to get out of the way. Unfortunately, I was already beginning my rounding, and I had no where to go, but my intended course. If I altered course, we would have collided. So, I kept my course around the mark, and the larger faster boat rounded outside of me without incident. There was no protest. I would be interested in others'' opinions.
