Wonder why he never hailed...  Both failed to maintain a proper lookout.

Damned starboard tack foiler!

I had to watch it a few times to take in the stupidity of the entire scenario and also to hear the moan the board skipper let out as he went down:lol:

That only applies in when wave sailing...

Generally down here board sailors give way because they are so maneuverable, you'ld have to be a bit of cunt to stand on but in this case both parties were out to lunch.

wait he's cough a WAVE in his mind or a ripple anyway...:P

Maybe I missed the sarcasm font...

pet peeve:

Windsurfing 'outbounders' having rights is only pertinent to leaving shore in breaking waves - ie: wave sailing! The windsurfer had rights in the above scenario!

Clearly, both parties failed on the lookout and hailing front... Back on shore the windsurfer gets a case of beer or his fav booze and all is well, maybe even a friendship blossoms!

As for rights: How would you determine in or outbound in the middle of large body of water? Who's inbound or outbound in the gorge? You leave the OR side and I leave the WA side, who is in and who is going out - do we wear colored helmets? 

Most board heads, of any flavor, have no idea what a 'port' or a 'starboard' is - much less who has rights or that rights exist at all!!

My best survival tactic to windsurfing Hood River nowadays: Head on a swivel, assume I'm the give way boat at all times, that I have no rights and I make aggressive course corrections to let the kooks know where I'm going! 15 years in the gorge and I've only been run over once, by a friend, on a very big day - we couldn't see each other until that just perfect "oh shit" last moment  as we drop into the same swell in opposite directions... I laid down and he sailed right over me on a huge swell - he had the line, he went on to finish his session - He cut my 4.2 in half and I still sailed into the launch I left from!!

We hard beers later! No worries! 

YMMV

I think only a on the water judge could call the questions you asked. I race big boats-and rec board sail. going in to the beach on Starboard one day on my board, I gave way to a out bound neighbor on a WindSurfer outbound. Later she asked why did I do that. Then went on to explain she was a National on the water sailing rules judge and all you stated above... Who knows who's got rights ,only defensive sailing will keep a boat or board in one piece.

WTF!?

The RRS have more than 1 or 2 rules!

1 of many: Starboard has right of way - you know, that sailing thing...that doesn't matter whether you are inbound or outbound from a shore?

Another one:

WAVE SAILING 'outbounders' have right of way. Tho, that's more of a beach rule than an sanctioned RRS...

 

 

Maybe the issue is you don't understand what it mean to 'wave sail'!

Someone has to say it..

"You scratched my anchor!"

 

DRIFTWOOD did scratch my anchor with this (after he talked to an on-water judge)!!!:

"Who knows who's got rights"

I do and a few others probably too... Clearly, he doesn't.

 

FYI: This is 'wave sailing' (in vs out applies):

 

 

This is windsurf racing where P & S apply regardless of 'boundness':
 

 

 

 

 I'm going to buff out my scratched anchor now...

Meaning for you, you still don't know 'who has rights'...

Thankfully, I would give you rights regardless of your lack of understanding, so -  you win!

I'll just add you to the list of another blind kook on the water! You should make t- shirts:

 

 

 

Outbounders Rule!
