This is shot from a gopro with a very wide angle lense, the distances (depth wise) are much closer than they appear in the video. The boats in the animated gif have a length of approximately 3x beam; the actual boats are 24' long and 4' wide so 6x beam.
Questions: 1. at position 1, when yellow enters the zone which boats are entitled to room? 2. As blue, green and red each enter the zone, while overlapped, they each establish inside rights on the boat immediately outside of them, right? or did they have it already from when yellow entered? 3. Yellow surges ahead inside the zone, to clear ahead, is yellow still obligated to give room to blue? Did yellow fail to give adequate room? 4. Yellow is the first boat to gybe onto port. Does yellow have any rights at all if the others are are starboard? 5. Did green have rights to go inside yellow? If so would green have fouled red by doing so? 5. when Green and Red made contact at position 2 was green giving red enough room?
Any other observations or advice?
