Did Al & I Blow It

At the 2006 Nationals in Coldwater, Uncle Al and I were competing head to head with Dave Nickels. At one time on the course, we were on S with Dave to windward¬†and we felt a wind shift. We tacked expecting to easily duck Dave’s stern. The¬†wind switched causing Dave to fall off almost 90 degrees while we were tacking. Imagine our shock and how hard we had to scramble to duck Dave rather than T-bone him. Even so, we felt a bump and suspected it was contact in the rigging.Rules question – If there was contact who had to do the penalty
