ISAF Rule 31 Touching a Mark -Part 5
September 11, 2008
31.1 While racing, a boat shall not touch a starting mark before starting, a
mark that begins, bounds or ends the leg of the course on which she is
sailing, or a finishing mark after finishing.
31.2 A boat that has broken rule 31.1 may, after getting well clear of other
boats as soon as possible, take a penalty by promptly making one turn
including one tack and one gybe. When a boat takes the penalty after
touching a finishing mark, she shall sail completely to the course side
of the line before finishing. However, if a boat has gained a significant
advantage in the race or series by touching the mark her penalty shall
be to retire.
