Somewthing that came to me after the webinar with D.Perry, for which I thank him again for the nice initiative.
In rule 16, the words "after the starting signal" has been deleted, and new wording "on a beat to windward" added.
Black flag, - 50 seconds to start
S approaching the starting line on starboard, slightly early
P approaching the starting line on port, same timing of S boat, on collision course.
Very near to starting line:
P bears away to pass downwind to S, RRS 10
S also bears away, not to get BFD, forcing S to bear much further
Before: RRS 16 not in use, no protest
Now:? S breaks RRS 16?
