Facts

RiaDeVigo finished her tack somewhere between 13:28 and 13:32.
Even taking the 'worst case scenario' (13:32) - Freja was at that time windward to RiaDeVigo.
Freja should keep clear under RRS 11.
There is room for Freja to keep clear, he does not try to do so.

Decision:
Explanation REJECTED
Freja DSQ for breaking RRS 11 on RiaDeVigo.
