Facts:
When Fasttits still was passing the mark and sailing straight, Duffy overlapped to leeward of him on a collision course. Fattits immediately luffed, and there was contact between the boats.



Conclusion:
Duffy did not give Fasttits room to keep clear when he established overlap to leeward, and broke rule 15.
Duffy did not give mark-room to Fasttits and broke rule 18.2(b), 18.2(c)(1) and 18.2(c)(2).

Decision:
Duffy to be disqualified in the race.
