Pre start positioning. Staying on port tack until late helps keep the options open.

Gaining an overlap from behind before the start. RRS 12 before the overlap. RRS 11 & 15 on gaining the overlap. RRS 16.1 if the leeward boat then changes course.

Pre-start circling

On the run. Enough room for 'Red Arms' to gybe onto starboard? When the situation changes from RRS 11 to RRS 10, RRS 15 must be met.

Windward mark and onto a run. The right side has the inside berth at the starboard hand bottom mark. The left side can come back with starboard or leeward rights. Which would you choose?

Pre start. Sailing away from the start line. Stopping the boat ahead gybing or tacking onto port.

Stopping the boat ahead from gybing or tacking onto port to get back to the start line. If 'Orange flash' can delay 'Red Arms' he can then lead back to the line and start ahead.

"Windward boat keep clear"
