BlueSweden was outside overlap, and should give Excalibur mark-room. Bluesweden does so, but right at the mark Excalibur broaches.
PC finds that Bluesweden gave mark-room to Excalibur, but receives a pen RRS 18.2b because of the broach. Further more, looking at replay of Bluesweden, there doesn't seems to be contact, and therefore neither boat breaks any rules.

Bluesweden pen cancel accepted, no further action.
Excalibur no action.
