%N Number of chord diagrams with n chords all having arc length at least 3.

%C A cyclical form of A190823.

%C Also the number of 2-uniform set partitions of {1...2n} such that, when the vertices are arranged uniformly around a circle, no block has its two vertices separated by an arc length of less than 3.
