Suggested wording for SI to reduce/discourage late port tack approach to windward mark
In the diagram we have a windward mark (#1) to be rounded to port with an offset mark (#2). In addition there is a windward approach limit mark (#3) which is intended to discourage boats from making a late approach on port tack.
The question is how best to describe this intent in the Sailing Instructions?
1) A line between the approach mark and the windward mark is an obstruction 2) A line between the approach mark and the windward mark is an obstruction to boats on port tack 3) The approach mark has a required side and must be passed to port 4) Other suggestions?
Thank you for your input John
