Yesterday, we headed out for the first race of the season, as approaching the starting area (about a mile out or so) I idled the engine and launched the sails. I hailed the committee boat to state my intentions of which they acknowledged. The committee announced a delay of about an hour to the start #1 due to the lack of wind (and it was dead). I decided at the that point why not just sail/float toward the line, well an hour passed and we were probably further away that when we first launched the sails. My question and I have looked through the rules and can't seem to find anything which addressed this, could I have restarted the engine and powered to a point closer to the line for our start #3? if so what are the limitations to doing this? how close could I have got - 300 yds? Which RRS addresses this?
