Rule 15, Acquiring Right of Way
Rule 18.2(a) & (b), Mark-Room: Giving Mark-Room
Rule 43.1(c), Exoneration

Rule 20, Room to Tack at an Obstruction
Rule 20(a), Exoneration

Definitions, Racing
Rule 22, Capsized, Anchored or Aground; Rescuing
Rule 42.1, Propulsion: Basic Rule
Rule 45, Hauling Out; Making Fast; Anchoring
A boat that is anchored during a race is still racing. A boat does not break rule 42.1 or rule 45 if, while pulling in her anchor line to recover the anchor, she returns to her position at the time the anchor was lowered. However, if pulling in the anchor line clearly propels her to a different position, she breaks those rules.
Rule 16.1, Changing Course
Rule 16.2, Changing Course
A starboard-tack boat that tacks after a port-tack boat has borne away to go astern of her does not necessarily break a rule.
Rule 11, On the Same Tack, Overlapped
Rule 14, Avoiding Contact
Rule 15, Acquiring Right of Way
Rule 16.1, Changing Course
Rule 17, On the Same Tack; Proper Course
When, after having been clear astern, a boat becomes overlapped to leeward within two of her hull lengths of the other boat, the windward boat must keep clear, but the leeward boat must initially give the windward boat room to keep clear and must not sail above her proper course. The proper course of the windward boat is not relevant.
Rule 42.1, Propulsion: Basic Rule
Rule 42.2(d), Propulsion: Prohibited Actions
Repeated helm movements to position a boat to gain speed on each of a series of waves generated by a passing vessel are not sculling unless they are forceful, and the increase in speed is the result of a permitted use of the water to increase speed.
Definitions, Proper Course
Rule 10, On Opposite Tacks
Rule 18.1(a) & (b), Mark-Room: When Rule 18 Applies
When a starboard-tack boat chooses to sail past a windward mark, a port-tack boat must keep clear. There is no rule that requires a boat to sail a proper course.
Rule 20, Room to Tack at an Obstruction
 If a boat hails for room to tack when she is neither approaching an obstruction nor sailing close-hauled or above, she breaks rule 20.1. The hailed boat is required to respond even if the hail breaks rule 20.1.
