RRS on One Page
So, we started to set up a reconstruction of the event on the table, using beer mugs and iPhones representing the mark, boats, etc. As the new sailor began to argue her case in an animated fashion with all the props, I innocently asked "OK, but first - where is the zone?" She replied "What's that?"
So, I explained what the zone is and the basics of Rule 18. She understood, admitted her mistake and took it all in good grace. The bumped boat entitled to markroom likewise took it in stride and all was forgiven.
This morning, the helm of the bumped boat sent the following chart to all members of the club and I wanted to share it here - it is excellent.
