Racing Rules Discussion

So Liam, have you read the new racing rules?

Um ...

They've been out a year. I thought you'd be up to speed by now.
After all, you are four years older than me. And I wasn't around much last year.

But Emily ...

I hear that if you touch a mark you only have to do a tack and a gybe, not a complete 360 degree turn?

Well, I ...

And that you're allowed to scull when you're above close-hauled and have little steerageway and are trying to turn back down to close-hauled. Is that right?

I'm just ...

And they've changed the rule about "hunting". I don't really understand that one. You're my big cousin, can you explain it to me?

Not really, I ...

What's up Liam? Why are you so quiet?

I was just trying to say that you look really cute Emily.

You too Liam. Just hold my hand and smile at the camera.

OK.
