    Before a start a overlapped leeward can head up a windward boat, not sailing a proper course however once the race starts can the leeward boat continue to luff?

    It depends on how the overlap was established. If the windward boat created the overlap by sailing to windward of the leeward boat then the leeward boat can luff after the start. If the leeward boat created the overlap when it sailed to leeward of the windward boat it must sail its proper course after the start.

    So are you saying in second scenario the leeward boat who created the overlap can’t pinch or head up ie luff in a tactical manner after the start
