Don't try this in front of a jury boat.  The reasons and explanations have already been given in earlier answers.  There is a world wide programme in process to get all judges to view the interpretation of rule 42 in the same way.

It seems to me that the new rules are a bit more lenient about waggling the tiller to get the bow off the wind.  Not a bad thing, many of these high performance boats have a tendency to go into irons and they can't be muscled into bearing away like say a Laser.  This happens a lot on the start line, now there's a legit way of getting going as long as you don't use it to propel yourself forwards.  Am I right?
