SI's contain the following statements:
Under MARKS, "The Rounding Marks are described in [reference document]" The reference document is not specific to the race so it doesn't describe sequence or required sides, just describes the position and characteristics of permanent marks for the racing area. The reference document also refers to all marks as "common marks" or "permanent marks", not as rounding marks)
Under COURSES, "All Marks will be rounded to port."
Does this make all of the marks on the race course chart rounding marks? Or does the SI have to designate specific marks as rounding marks?
Does it make a difference if, due to the geometry of the course, some of them would have to be looped in order to meet the string rule? Considering this diagram in the context of the SIs, does the orange track for course A-B-C-D-A (which I think is the course intended by the RC) comply with Rule 28? Does the green track? Or only the blue track that loops mark B?
