Interpretation of the term “damage”
Is there a special meaning of “damage” in the racing rules?

No. It is not possible to define “damage” comprehensively, but one current English dictionary says “harm . . . impairing the value or usefulness of something.”

This definition suggests questions to consider. Examples are:
  • Was the current market value of any part of the boat, or of the boat as a whole, diminished?
  • Was any item of the boat or her equipment made less functional?
