For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere facing rain, snow and a polar vortex, I thought I'd offer a little rules exercise. It is not a difficult question, but I think it's a good exercise in understanding how the rules interact. So for those of you who see this as a simple question, please don't spoil the fun unless you're willing to fully lay out the analysis. And for those of you in the Southern Hemisphere, go sailing. Here it is:
The PC hears a protest between starboard and port. They conclude that port did not keep clear as required by RRS 10
, and that starboard altered course such that she didn't give port room to keep clear as required by RRS 16.1
. What is their decision.
