Leeward Mark Room - Rule 18 & 11
1 -Yellow and Blue reach the zone with overlap - Yellow is entitled to Mark Room Rule 18 2- Blue hails to Yellow that she has to luff to windward (Rule 11) and start rounding the mark- claiming Yellow is taking too much room 3 - Yellow ignores - "we are making our proper rounding - sailing the proper course"- definition of Mark Room
Is Blue entitled to apply Rule 11 and should Yellow have luffed windward until minimal room was left to her? I.e. can Blue file a protest here?
