The VSK auto-umpire is very tough on the right-of-way skipper when it comes to this rule. Unlike in real life, the auto-umpire is all-seeing so if the right-of-way boat rudder is in any position other than centered then a penalty for violating this rule is very easy to earn when a keep clear boat is in close proximity at
the overlapped windward position
when you are in close quarters with another boat and you have right-of-way
ensure you have good boat speed
tap the key to center the rudder
do not touch left or right rudder keys until the risk of contact has either passed or contact has been made (and a penalty given to the other boat)
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.
