Sailing Rules Quiz

May and June quiz answers on Education page.
(There was no July Quiz)
August Quiz:
Boats X and Y are sailing dead-downwind halfway down a run.  Boat X, whose boom is out over her port side, is clear astern of Boat Y, whose boom is out over her starboard side.  X is blanketing Y's wind and is catching up quickly.  Neither boat has changed their course int 10 lengths preceeding the incident.  X finally catches up and her bow makes contact with Y's transon.  There is no damage.  Both protest each other.  You are on the protest committee; how would you decide this?
August Quiz answer given at the August 24th membership meeting.
