Click on the animation to run it over this page or right click to run it in a separate window.

Two boats are racing to windward on opposite tacks. The port tack boat bears off to duck astern of the starboard tack boat. The starboard tack boat bears off to force it to bear off more sharply.

Has blue kept clear of yellow? Has yellow fouled blue?

See Rules 10, 16.2 and the definition of “keeping clear”.
