Green server Race 3 - Cancel Explanation - euphoria vs Jonte

Post by euphoria »

Submission Type: C

1. Your registered Boat Name: euphoria

2. Race Day: F

3, Group: Green

4. Race: 3

5. Time: 13:42

6. Rule(s) applicable: 2, 13

7. Boat(s) involved: Jonte / euphoria

8. Description:
I protested Jonte manually, because I did not see who I got the pen from.
I withdraw that protest, as it's covered by this cancel explanation.

Jonte did not fetch the mark, but still he rounded it by passing HTW and hitting the mark. I had to luff to avoid him, so he broke rule 13. His move initiated a series of chain reaction events causing problem to many boats. There is a strong current down the course, and it's known that this mark is difficult...

I was compelled to break a rule (11) due to these actions. I could tack and break rule 13 for crashing with Ziomax. I could stay high and hit the mark. I could stay HTW and go backwards and hit the boats behind. Usually it's best to then hit the boat that is breaking the rules, which I did.

9. Print Screen attached (required for a manual protest): N/A

10. Replay attached (recommended):
