Here is a common scenario: With about 30 seconds to go you are luffing head to wind (in, let's say, 5-8 knots of wind and smooth water), effectively stopped, on the start line with a nice hole to leeward. Just before the start, you scull down to a close hauled course, roll the boat to leeward then back to windward to quickly accelerate into that nice hole to leeward. The result is a great front row start. Question: is this ok under rule 42? Here is a link to the rule 42 interpretations on the ISAF web site.
