Facts :
> 10:43 Q23 completes his tack
> 10:44 jimi hails RTT - this is as fast as practically possible following the previous event
> 10:46 jimi begins to luff - could not wait longer in order to keep clear of Q23
> 10:49 jimi pass HTW and no longer has ROW over Frenito
> 10:49 Frenito bears away to pass behind jimi

Decision :
> Jimmi's cancel ACCEPTED.
> Frenito DSQ for breaking rule 20.2(c).
> No further action.

Information :
> Frenito had two options when jimi hailed.
- tack as soon as possible
- immediately reply you tack

Frenito did neither, and thereby broke rule 20.2(c).
