Not sure...but doesn't a sail boat have right of way over a power boat? Not sure how it would apply to a tanker though.

the tanker has right of way, when there is a doubt it is the less maneuverable vessel, although in this case there is no doubt who had right of way and it doesn't matter that the sailors are "racing"
