The Racing Rules of Sailing 2009-2012 Edition Published Online

The Racing Rules of Sailing for 2009-2012 (RRS) has been made available to download online ahead of the worldwide date of implementation on 1 January 2009.

Details below the link.  I will be putting together a summary of the key changes over the next month or so as I get my head around the new definitions. The biggest change is in relation to rule 18 for rounding marks, the 2 boat length zone is no more.  It is replaced by 3 boat lengths of the leading boat.  For my fellow anoraks or those with trouble sleeping out there enjoy all 157 shiny new pages.

Good luck to Steven Curtis in the final of the RYA Honda Youth Rib Challenge at the Southampton Boat Show on Sunday !!!
