    Rules are bad in this game!

    2 rules bugs I think should be addressed. 1. At the left leeward gate mark (looking upwind), 9 times out of 10 the inside boat will be penalised even if she is taking appropriate mark room. (This may happen on the right mark also, but I haven't experiences this so much recently.) 2. I think this is what emarck means. When 2 boats are overlapped on a beat, and the leeward boat presses Tack and hits windward just before she is head to wind, the windward is always penalised for 11 where it would usually be more fair for leeward to be given a 16.1. Sailx had a lot of issues with 11 vs 16.1, programming in reaction times etc, so I know it is hard.

    Steve, Regards knowing what rule was "judged" to be broken, there is a rule number posted below the clock and beside the penalty duration count down, as per this photo: www.www.dropbox.com/s/jegvur0kvnhuawa/R15.JPG?dl=0 . Has this now disappeared? (Play on iOS and haven't noticed if now removed?) I have had P/S penalties off the start line twice, before and during the worlds qualifiers, so I don't think this is a new bug. Rules engine bugs is the big topic. Sailx spent years refining theirs and it was still imperfect. The developers could consider telling the non-penalised boat what rule was judged to be infringed, and give the option of transferring the penalty if they deem it to be unfair/incorrect. But there is less of a community here, and no replays/fair play spirit/rules awareness here compared to sailx so I don't think many would feel compelled to transfer penalties.

    The Playoffs had major bugs with zero communication or accountability. They don't seem bothered or able to do a livestream. What a great showcase for our sport. www.twitter.com/worldsailing/status/1057324836849152000
