There's a widespread rumour that penalty turns can be taken when it suits you. E.g 'before the end of the leg'
Not true, and it never has been true
The wording (it's RRS 44.2) includes 'getting well clear of other boats as soon after the incident as possible' and 'promptly'
Case law says that if the fastest way to get clear of other boats is to stop, then do so.
