Room at the mark
Nationality: New Zealand
These are one-design keelboats sailing a W/L series. Here, although there was contact, there was no damage or injury. After rounding the bottom mark, Y was slow to trim her main and come up to close hauled. B came up quickly and Y's boom came inside B's backstay. Their hulls did not touch. During the contact, Y's main remained full. Y came up but did not trim the main and the boats separated. There were no protests - although we were all a bit surprised there was no damage to B's rig. How should this be judged? Did B give Y enough room? Did Y fail to avoid the leeward boat?
