Variant on Case 114 Q1
Nationality: United States
Judge In Training
Apologies if this has been asked before. Came from a very astute student in my Learn-To-Race rules class last week, in part because of how I teach the "overlapped between" rule. Clarification here will help me teach that better (among other things). Thanks for your feedback.
Orange is overlapped inside Yellow when the latter reaches the zone. Green is clear astern. However, before Orange reaches the zone, Green surfs into an inside overlap on Orange. Assuming the boats arrive at the mark still overlapped (or at least close together), what are Yellow's obligations vis-a-vis the
that she owes Orange and Orange owes Green? Note that this situation is slightly different from Case 114 Q1 as the boats arrive with a different overlap situation.
