Engine failure? fuel starvation? Electrical failure. Any of the 27 sensors in an Opti chucking the engine into Guardian mode (that would soon put you in a slow displacement craft) are some resons I can think of for folowing the colregs and not nipping in front.
If you have no respect for International Marine Law it's your call...... but don't justify your bad practices to others, please
whatever happens I hope you stay safe
