    2017 Rules Rule 69

    It's in the Rules -> Definitions Keep Clear A boat keeps clear of a right-of-way boat (a) if the right-of-way boat can sail her course with no need to take avoiding action and, (b) when the boats are overlapped, if the right-of-way boat can also change course in both directions without immediately making contact. As to the vid you've posted.. Being a judge myself, I actually had a good laugh. That doesn't mean that I'd support such actions (as a judge ) Did I also see a smile on W crew's face in that video?

    FP - old news

    I'm wondering why is this year's Kieler Woche that took place in June is on the FP as if it was sailed just recently. Someone forgot to check the facts? It's one of the major events in WS circus and biggest event for other classes in Germany, but why now? This regatta is already forgotten..

    J70, cheating and pros

    I wish people would consult J/70 Class Rules, Builder Specifications and J/70 FAQs before defending Carlo's actions. All are available here, btw: http://www.j70ica.org/class-office-rules Was Carlo's keel changed by licensed manufacturer or with the approval of the licensed manufacturer and his boat’s Manufacturers Declaration re-issued? Most probably not. The emphasis here is on words 'licensed manufacturer'. The Technical Committee for the event has no saying in this matter, I'm afraid. From FAQs

    If you're perfectly honest, use calibrated load cell. It's that simple.

    J70, cheating and pros

    There's some talk about Rule 69 in this German article: http://segelreporter.com/regatta/j70-worlds-erwischt-ex-weltmeister-alberini-und-sechs-crews-nach-betrug-nicht-zugelassen/ Google translation is poor, but you'll get the idea. It's the same source that posted those videos on Youtube, btw.

    That's pretty dumb move. Rules 62.1 (a) and 76 - 'an improper action or omission by RC, PC, OA or TC'. Interestingly, what that would be? These guys are right in the Rule 69 territory and then they trying to blame RC, TC or OA? Well, well..

    RRS 20 hail when no Obstruction

    Rule 20 is called 'ROOM TO TACK AT AN OBSTRUCTION' Is there an obstruction? NO. Rule 20 does not apply. Period. See also: http://game.finckh.net/situat/tit_gbr/s18_e.htm

    One Russian banned from Rio

    You guys should watch these two documentaries made by German TV channel ARD (state owned, similar to BBC in UK): The first one is mostly in German, except the interviews with whistle-blowers, the follow-up is in English.
