Rule 42 Clinic: ISAF and the Finn Class ran a Rule 42 Clinic in Palma in March 2014. The day was videoed by several cameras and some onboard stern mounted cameras. Afterwards the footage was analysed to select common situations where Rule 42 is being broken, and also situations that do not break Rule 42. The clips on this page are all on the downwind.
