Clarifacation fo rules for backtracking
4.24.5 During a navigation along a leg, competitors must not backtrack along the track line against the direction of the task. Backtracking is defined as flying with an angle of greater than 90 degrees in respect to the intended flight direction. This limitation is extended to the corridor defined by the width used to score gates in the task.
At the WMPC we had a case, that a competitor realised, that he was wrong at one turnpoint, flying part of the remaining track, returned to one of the righjt entry points and flew part of the track twice. This was not n the spirit of the task, but not against the existing rules. The jury had to accept the protest of this competitor against penalties, because the rules are not clear enough,.
