    J Class and Superyacht drone footage

    Apologies The starboard tack boat is an obstruction. Be good to see some overhead footage to get a better perspective of what actually happened including the build up.

    @Cristoforo Get a rule book. I'm happy to discuss another day. PM me if you like.

    Hmm When did the overlap with Velsheda become established? Would not Velsheda need to give Svea room so Svea could avoid Topaz? Conjecture aside strikes me none of us are fully aware of the facts (including the build up to the incident) and perhaps the rules...………!?

    Is this the Figaro III?

    Different type of sailing too - Figaro % wise will spend more time sailing up-wind compared to the IMOCA. An interesting and exciting development for me as a spectator.

    Fair play. Apols - it just amazes me the amount of people who have posted saying the jury got it wrong and the bleating about the penalty. Speaking broadly about what keeping clear is and how much room is enough room is very condition and boat type dependent as I'm sure you appreciate. Cheers

    WOXI fan boys are still in denial - very boring. Says much about the human condition!

    Freyja look like they've dropped the hook for a rest. I haven't heard that anything is amiss.

    Apols if this has already been posted.

    Yes - a bit arbitary. Clearly to penalise such that position is not lost is no penalty. Beyond that I don't have a clue. Guess that's why I'm not an IJ. I do however think the given penalty is adequate.

    Question about how 60 mins was arrived at.

    Yes he is if he believes a rule has been broken. Top of Page 11 in the Blue Book (my emphasis) SPORTSMANSHIP AND THE RULES Competitors in the sport of sailing are governed by a body of rules that they are expected to follow and enforce. A fundamental principle of sportsmanship is that when competitors break a rule they will promptly take a penalty, which may be to retire. The copy on board WOXI must have been eaten by moths. https://www.google.com.au/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://www.sailing.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Sailing-v6.pdf&ved=0ahUKEwis8MOLua7YAhUMWbwKHTvJBqkQFghJMAM&usg=AOvVaw3SxSZqWQcQmD4DciHw Yep get that but am not 100% on enforce means must protest though for sure I understand you pointing out the inference. Am wondering how that impacts on a third party who witnesses a non contact infringement. I'll go do some reading.
