On my wish list for the rules:

An unambiguous Case in the Case Book clearly indicating that bullying, including use of bad language, on the water or after the race is a clear infringement of Rule 2, and, in particular, that when any adult using bullying to gain an advantage over juniors there should automatically be action taken under rule 69.

I have to often seen boats arriving at a congested mark rounding and forcing their way through the ruck by an over zealous use of f-ing and blinding, sometimes insulting other competitors... this should not be a feature of our sport especially when we are trying to encourage more ladies and youngsters into sailing

A hail of "Water" followed by the boat number of the boat involved should be enough... if not the next words should not be *!&*!... but simply "Protest".

The only permissible swearing on boars a boat is when the crew is expressing their opinion of the source of all error's(aka the helmsman) ability!

I take you point - but I have to point out that "water" is not now the accepted wording, it is now "room".

The rules do not actually impose any obligation to hail for rights under RRS 18, in consequence they do not impose any specific words. Any hail would however be considered by a jury as expressing some intention to leave room for the other boat to either give room or keep clear. "Water" would seem (to me at least) to be an adequate hail, as would "Room" - "F... Off I'm coming through" might be a breach of RRS 2.
