Forgive the basic question but as a club racer where the rules pretty much begin and end with Port/Starboard a situation occurred at a recent race which I'm hoping you can advise me on.
Three boats (all the same class) running under spinnaker on starboard. The tide is ebbing and we're all in very shallow water. I'm leeward boat in deeper water (green), at position 2 the boat windward (yellow) calls water on me as they are catching Blue and are in danger of running into their transom. I gave them room, but did i have to or should they have tried to slow down?
Again sorry for the novice question. Thanks
