There is the issue that once a yacht has retired it is no longer racing and is just like any other sailing vessel where the IRPCS (International regulations for the Provention of Collisions at Sea) will apply when boats meet.

These do not give any additional rights to the racer or obligations to those not.

Local club rules could change this particuarly on confined waters, but on the open sea?

Actually no. From the intro to RRS Part 2.

The rules of Part 2 apply between boats that are sailing in or near the racing area

and intend to race, are racing, or have been racing.
