There is an error on Page 20 in the Conclusion paragraph. By mistake, an early draft of the paragraph was included. I am working with the Editor to correct the published version asap (may take a week as he is away). The Conclusion paragraph should read as follows.
Sorry for any confusion.

Conclusion and decision. When 7 and 36 entered the zone of the weather mark close reaching, 7 was inside and entitled to mark room under R 18.  R 20 does not apply as under R 20.1.b, 36 cannot hail for room to tack to avoid 66, (the obstruction on stbd), as she is sailing below close hauled. (Note if 36 did hail for room to tack under R 20, then 7 would have to comply with the hail but would then protest 36 for an improper hail). As 7 & 36 converged with 66 on STBD, 36 has to pass astern of 66, and under R19.2.b 36, must also give room to 7 also to pass astern of 66. To avoid contact with 66, 7 eased her sails in an attempt to slow down, but as a result, contacted 36 to leeward and came upright and the top of her mast contacted the rig of 66.
