4.Race (number): 11

5.Time (in Replay): 11:28:42

8.Description: At 11:28:40 at upwind mark Albervita is approaching the mark starboard; In the attempt to tack Tiki, still starboard, hit the mast of Albervita. Instead of a proper 10 Nadeo assignes a 15 to Albervita, asked and then cancelled. I did not raise protest because in any case at 15:44 Tiki leaves the race.

Facts:
> Albervita to leeward of Tiki, both on port tack
> Albervita tacks to starboard
> When Albervita completes the tack, the seperation to Tiki's bow is one third of a boat length
> At this moment Tiki has already started to luff, and continues into a tack
> While tacking, the masts hit

Decision:
> Albervita's cancelation DISMISSED
> Albervita DSQ for breaking RRS15
> No further action against Tiki
