I am the walrus
Hi have only just acquired this facinating game and as yet havent played it under even the basic rules. My understanding of 'the right of way' means i may not be able to block your path forward but surely that doesnt prevent me pulling alongside and blocking the wind from reaching your sails thus blanketing you. Hence the 'right of way' would appear not to render blanketing obsolete. Can anyone confirm this?
Alan, you are right. According to the 3M rules a player has failed to keep clear if his yacht ends a turn on a space directly in the path of a right-of-way yacht.
