18.3(b) at the Windward Mark
Created: 18-May-06 08:23
B is passing the windward mark close hauled on port tack. B is overlapped to leeward of Y, who is also on port tack. Therefore B is inside, overlapped, and right of way.
The wind is constant and blowing straight down the course. It seems that B may luff Y head to wind (subject to 16)?
A puff approaches the boats from the left (looking upwind). It seems that so long as one boat is still in the zone, B must now jibe around the mark as that is her proper course?
Do I have this right?
