Part of the RYA Racing series, this new Racing Rules Explained book, which replaces the 2017-2020 version, is the complete guide to understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing, and this format allows for very simple navigation and linking between sections to help you find the information you need.
Racing Rules are compulsory for all racing sailors the world over, and this title serves to complement the existing RYA Sail Racing publications, and also to provide adequate explanations, through clear text and diagrams, behind all the Racing Rules.
This book is for competitors, race officials and anyone who wishes to increase their knowledge of the Racing Rules. It is comprehensive, with seven sections that contain rules for every competitor:
• Fundamental Rules
• When Boats Meet
• Conduct of a Race
• Other Requirements when Racing
• Protests, Redress Hearings, Misconduct and Appeals
• Entry and Qualifications
• Race Organisation
This book also references the 2021-2024 case books for World Sailing, RYA, USA and Canada making it the most relevant title available.
Written by Trevor Lewis, former Chair of the RYA Racing Committee, a World Sailing International Judge and an acknowledged rules expert.
