US Sailing Appendix V1, as found in the 2017-2020 Racing Rules of Sailing, PENALTY AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT, shall be in effect. This will apply to all CORA races from 7/12/17 onwards.
For your information, Appendix V1 reads as follows:

The first two sentences of rule 44.1 are changed to: 'A boat may take a One-Turn Penalty when she may have broken one or more of the rules of Part 2 or Rule 31 in an incident while racing. However, when she may have broken one or more rules of Part 2 while in the zone around a mark other than a starting mark, her penalty shall be a Two-Turns Penalty.'
