That is why it's nice to have fast servo's. You can gybe fast enough to not loose any ground. Keep the boom to port and you have as much rights as you can in any situation.

Note that if you use boom position for tack it works no matter what the wind direction.

Rules are part of the fun

What makes sailing "racing" not fun is when the players don't care to know the rules. It is a poor excuse and you aren't racing unless there is a defined framework. The number of arguments that arise from the skippers not understanding that they were not the ROW boat dominates my local club. I am relatively new to sailing models but I have flown GA aircraft for decades and the rules save my life and we aren't even racing. Most accidents arise from broken rules. Not caring to read or know them and to take umbrage from someone trying to explain them is a local club disease. I look for as many regional and national events I can and never are there situation as basic as this discussion. When you accept that there are rules then you may interpret them to the jurors in the room, or take your turns because you believe in Corinthian ethics.
