downwind finish at gate with port and starboard finishers
Both Y and B are 18' Cat-boats. Winds 12 gust to 18. Y boat is on starboard and leeward of B boat (who had a balloon gybe and is bearing down on Y boat). B boat calls for room at starboard finish gate mark. Y boat feels they cannot go lower without risking a gybe (crew sitting on boom) and also having boom potentially hit crew on B boat.
B boat hits Y boat and the mark. Does turns and finishes after Y boat. Please confirm Y boat did not have to give room at the finish mark. Is there ANY instance in which Y boat (which was starboard the entire time) would NOT have had rights here?
