Barging - Common Applications

Barging - Common Applications

Dave Dellenbaugh

As I mentioned on the previous page. rule 18 does not actually contain an anti-barging provision. It simply has a small section (18.1a) that says the rule does not apply at certain times near starting marks. Rule 18 turns off when boats are approaching a starting mark to start, and it stays off until the boats have passed that mark and its anchor line. While the rule is inapplicable, barging is essentially prohibited since boats are neither entitled to room nor obliged to give room at any starting mark.   more

At the committee boat end of the line what are the rights of the leeward and windward boat if the leeward boat allows enough room for the windward (barging) boat to get between it and the committee boat? That is, do the leeward boat's luffing rights terminate once the windward boat overlaps the RC boat? Does the leeward boat have the right to luff the windward boat up into the side of the RC boat? Is the windward (barging) boat at fault for poking itself into a hole left by the leeward boat between itself and the RC boat?12/11/2006 9:33:14 AM
