My basic question is : irrespective of merit, who wrote the revised RRS and were they discussed with all parties - was there any buy-in from teams?In 2017 "hunting" was allowed per the RRS. Go read them! You were specifically allowed to dial down upto 90° off true wind for the express purpose of interfering with the other boat.
For this AC that allowance is gone. AND, to make it worse, any change in heading and you basically lose your ROW status (rule 16, I think).
These rules are broken. Too late to change now unless we get a serious injury. But I hope for the next cycle the RRS will be written to allow more match racing tactics.
