Nah, do your racing everywhere. Just be confident in your ability to manoeuvre a boat through spaces which ought to be impossible! And do your turns when it goes wrong.

Rupert's right.  But it is also a case of percentages, and taking account of you own capabilities.  In my case trying to gybe on the pin inside a load of others in high winds would risk a lot more than a possible 720.

Always enforce 18.3. Take it to the room, win easily!  After a few successful protests people tend to stop doing it  Wink

If a boat in the zone of a mark to be left to port passes head to wind from port to starboard tack and is then fetching the mark, she shall not cause a boat that has been on starboard tack since entering the zone to sail above close-hauled to avoid contact and she shall give mark-room if that boat becomes overlapped inside her. When this rule applies between boats, rule 18.2 does not apply between them.

Which sounds lovely but when you are in a carbon H2 up against a 20 year old FF and you know you can win protest and then send your boat off to be repaired!

Just take clear and obvious avoiding action and protest. No need to bash carbon.

Easy to do in the rarified atmosphere at the front of the fleet, less easy down with the luffers and stuffers ... particularly since I don't believe "wide in" is now considered to be proper mark room ... though I will bow to JimC or Brass should they correct me!
