All awesome points, Jay.

As Jake has mentioned, they need a game-changer for the penalty system. What they have is probably fair, but horrific for spectators, including those of us who already know the sport. They need something much better than a blue light until a magic invisible distance is met.

Even something as simple as stop the boat for 10 seconds would be better than this. They could make the time adjustable to match the speeds and extent of the infraction, but we need something we can measure and watch to know when it's over.
