Hopefully you can open the attached .pdf file.
Two boats, A & B, are on a beat to windward, approaching a weather mark to be rounded starboard-side to. The proper course after the mark is a port tack broad reach.
Boat boats are on starboard tack, and A is clear ahead but to leeward when it first enters the zone (Position 1). The proper course is for both boats is to tack onto port to clear the mark, and then bear off once cleared. Once A reaches the layline, it tacks over to port. A completes his tack cleanly, but soon after B (on starboard) collides with him, and yells "Protest".
Is A entitled to mark room (i.e. is he exonerated for the collision)?
