When Nick tacked, he became ROW and to begine with under RRS 15. Duffy is able to go behind Nick, but Elmoro not that option.
Elmoro would have had to call RTT on Piotr, but there is not enough time to do, in order Piotr to react. Therefore Nick under RRS 15 should have let Elmoro pass ahead. Elmoro tries his best to avoid Nick, but can't do enough to avoid contact. As Elmoro luffs to avoid Nick, Elmoro gets a pen 17, and because of contact Nick gets a pen 15. Nick takes a pen turn, less than 20 seconds after contact.

Elmoro pen cancel accepted, no further action.
Nick no action, as he takes a pen turn.
