Facts:

Jonte, arriving on starboard-tack, tacks to port in front of Djonny who is already on port-tack.
Djonny, to not hit Jonte's stern (rrs12) bears off to keep clear and creates a leeward overlap to Jonte.
From being the giveway boat, Djonny became the ROW boat.
Jonte has now to keep clear under rrs11.
Djonny is expected to give room to Jonte under rrs15.

As the host replay shows, Djonny "barely" gives inches to Jonte to keep clear.
PC finds that, Jonte had no room to keep clear, eventhough he tried as Djonny was changing course to force his opponent away.

Therefore Djonny breaks RRS 15+16.1

Decision:
Djonny pen cancel not accepted, DSQ for breaking RRS 15+16.1
Jonte no action.
