Just a couple more that have surfaced from the handout from Kyle on Tuesday. This sheet is called the “10 Racing Rules for Radio Sailing”.
I’ve not duplicated those already spelled out above, just those not already mentioned there which I believe are relevant to us.
~ Windward keeps clear of leeward (you are to leeward when the other boat is closer to where the wind is coming from than you)
~ Astern keeps clear of boat ahead (you are ahead when the other boat is completely behind a line drawn at right angles to your transom)
~ Keep clear when tacking or gybing
~ If you have violated a rule take a penalty immediately, don’t wait to be called out on it.
