RULE # 1 of our Club Sailing Rules "The Starboard Call"

It is not very wise it IGNORE a call of"Starboard" from a 1.5 Cl Yacht when trying to bluff your way through with a 600mm yacht (hoping to get away with it)? In this case the 1.5 (who had right of way) While trying to avoid running over the little fella lost about 6 boat lengths at the start through no fault of his own?
