Question is; coming to the start line, pin end both boats on starboard tack A is windward B is leeward boats are slightly overlapped behind and approaching start line B tries to luff A, A responds by heading up does not touch the pin as both boats cross start line B continues to luff A after clearing the start and is well beyond head to wind with mainsail and jib luffing, A responds by coming up and hails B sail your proper course B continues to luff A then comments if we have contact I will protest you A tells B again to sail a proper course B abruptly goes bow down A goes bow down almost same time trying to avoid contact with B, B stern just misses hitting A amidships by inches but no contact occurred. . Question is who had right way and when? Seems to me poor sportsmanship by B to apparently try and make cotact and not make an effort to avoid contact. If B had made contact with A could B have been protested by A for trying to make contact and not avoiding a collision and also for not sailing a proper course?
