You are heading to the finish line on STARBOARD TACK and two other yachts do the same but they sail on PORT TACK and tend to cross your course. Can you keep sailing your course? Yes, I have right-of-way on STARBOARD TACK and can force boats on PORT TACK outside of the finish line. Yes, I have right-of-way except I have to allow PORT TACK boats room to finish. You are sailing ON-THE-WIND and you see a yacht sailing OFF-THE-WIND approaching. What do you have to do? I must keep clear, because the other yacht is sailing on STARBOARD TACK and has right-of-way. I have right-of-way and look for a signal that the other yacht sees me. I shall not alter course so as to mislead or prevent the other yacht from keeping clear.
