What part of the starting mark is the official end of the starting line?
We have a round ball as a starting “pin”. Looking down the line from the pre start side of the RC flag staff, a boat had its bow directly in line with the center of the “pin” ball. Is she OCS because she was over the line to the pre-start side of the ball? Starting clear because half the ball was still visible when the start horn/flag was sounded/dropped? Does the RC need to sight to the middle of the ball which is the hardest position to actually determine?
Curious as I have not faced this situation before. We can find nothing in RRS on this and there are no appeals we can find as OCS is not something you can protest.
