Proper course and overtaking boat
Nationality: United Kingdom
This is the course sailed by BOAT A to prevent BOAT B (with asymmetric spinnaker hoisted) from overtaking. At the point of just establishing an overlap the BOAT A changes course away from the mark to push BOAT B above the point at which she can use her spinnaker, but BOAT A does not sail above her close hauled. Does BOAT B have case to protest as she believes BOAT B is no longer sailing her proper course to the mark?
