The program will focus on applying the rules to common (and uncommon) scenarios, as well as some commonly misunderstood situations. We’ll look at upwind, downwind, mark-room and starting situations, both boat-on-boat and in crowds, for one-designs and mixed fleets. We’ll pay particular attention to transitions – the transition from one rule to another as situations evolve.
Discussion will include the rights and obligations of each boat and also the tactical choices the rules create.
