Note: During an A-Fleet Race, 648 on port-tack crossed astern of 618, who was on starboard-tack. After 648 was passing astern of 618, 618 tacked to port-tack. This matter was withdrawn after discussion.

Rule 16, Changing Course
Rule 16.1 When a right-of-way boat changes course, she shall give the other boat room to keep clear.
Rule 16.2 In addition, when after the starting signal a port-tack boat is keeping clear by sailing to pass astern of a starboard-tack boat, the starboard-tack boat shall not change course if as a result the port-tack boat would immediately need to change course to continue keeping clear.
CASE 6 A starboard-tack boat that tacks after a port-tack boat has borne away to go astern of her does not necessarily break a rule.
CASE 92 When a right-of-way boat changes course, the keep-clear boat is required to act only in response to what the right-of-way boat is doing at the time, not what the right-of-way boat might do subsequently.
CASE 60 When a right-of-way boat changes course in such a way that a keep-clear boat, despite having taken avoiding action promptly, cannot keep clear in a seamanlike way, the right-of-way boat breaks rule 16.1.

After thinking about the matter and looking at the diagrams drawn to illustrate the situation, we think 648 had little or no reason to complain about 618. While 618 did tack upwind of 648, 648 had room to keep clear as in rule 16.1. and per Case 60. Case 6 and Case 92 also seem to support the final result. Alex and Bill.
