Daily Lift

Immediately after the starting signal, the race committee signals an ‘Individual Recall’ and clearly hails Boat S’s number.  S (on starboard tack) luffs her sails in an attempt to slow down so that she can clear herself from other boats and return to the start.  Boat P (on port tack), on a collision course with S, decides that S is a “premature starter” with no rights , and tries to cross ahead of S.  S bears away ten degrees to avoid P, and protests.  You are on the protest committee; how would you decide this? Come back tomorrow for the answer!
