That's a matter of interpreting your rules, since RONR doesn't have any such position.  However, I think most of us would agree that, while one can wind up being Immediate Past X as well as current X, it wouldn't be this way.  Most of us here also agree that you shouldn't have any such position, at least not with any actual duties or power.

Well, not quite. By common english usage, the immediate past officer would be the last person to hold that office prior to the current office holder.

So if a person is elected to a second consecutive term, that person would be the Immediate Past Captain as well; as the newly elected Captain?

No, not by the generally accepted definition above. The current office holder is current, regardless of how many consecutive terms he may serve.

Incidentally, RONR does not recognize any role for immediate past officers.

No. Unless you have some customized rule to the contrary, the immediate past president (or, I suppose, captain), is the last person to hold that office PRIOR TO the current occupant of the office. An  officer such as president doesn't become a past president (or immediate past president) until he is no longer president.

No.  If someone is the present captain, then someone else must be the past captain.
