Could someone please point me to the actual rules? I don't seem to be able to find them, at least not the ones I'm being penalised for.

I keep hoping that VR will either publish new rules to match the on-water calls, or fix the umpire logic to match the rules.  Still waiting...

Pat - the problem is many penalties on the water do not match the published rules.  Rule 18 is a mess, also 13, 15 and 16.

Players learn to exploit the bad calls to their advantage and avoid situations where the other boat is in a position to exploit incorrectly called penalties. 

Just because people tolerate this doesn't make it correct or fair.

Yep, the rules are a mess. I played a lot, and was deliberately taken out by another top player exploiting rules bugs. He admitted as much via private message (then went on to win some major regatta last year). So, at the moment, you have to cheat to win, sadly.
