Facts found: - This incident occurred during Race 1 of the Second Series of Wednesday Night Racing. - Xiberger is 38 feet long, Hall Pass is 26 feet long - The wind was approximately 5 knots with corresponding seas - Hall Pass was approaching Mark N8, on port tack, N8 was to be left to port. - Xiberger was on starboard tack fetching the mark. - Hall Pass tacked to Starboard, and when she completed her tack she was 2.5 boat lengths from the mark and 20 feet in front of Xiberber -in tacking starboard, Hall Pass passed head to wind in the zone. - Xiberger then established an overlap to leeward of Hall Pass - Hall Pass continued her course without altering helm after Xiberger established the overlap. - Xiberger hit the mark 6 feet from her bow on the port side. - Contact with the mark caused damage to Xiberger at the point of contact. - There was no contact between the boats. Conclusions: -The zone applicable to this situation was 3 of Hall Pass’ boat lengths. - After Hall Pass passed head to wind in the zone, she was obligated to give Xiberger mark room when Xiberger established an overlap to leeward. - Hall Pass failed to give Xiberger mark room, breaking rule 18.3. - Xiberger broke rule 31 when she hit the mark, but is exonerated pursuant to rule 21.
