Rule 20 Vs rule 18
Club Race Officer
I believe that in the depicted situation Blue may under rule 20 hail for room to tack and avoid green on starboard. I do not understand however why red has to respond by tacking when under rule 18 she has room at the mark. If she does tack and hits the Mark can she not protest Blue under rule 18?
