The new Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016

As usual the Racing Rules of Sailing are reviewed every four years after the Olympic Regatta and amended based of the submissions received by ISAF and approved by Council on the recommendations of the Racing Rules Committee. The English version of the RRS can be downloaded already. A French version is already available, the German version should be ready in January 2013. The changes are minor and deal with items such as crossing the finish line or mark rounding. 'Rules in Practice' by Bryan Willis explains the new rules.
