2017 Rules Now Available

Racing Rules 2017

Mar 7, 2017

Hot off the press!

Sail Canada’s Racing Rules of Sailing for 2017-2020 includes Sail Canada Prescriptions and incorporates World Sailing’s Change #s 1, 2 & 3 issued 20 October 2016.

The Racing Rules of Sailing includes two main sections. The first, Parts 1-7, contains rules that affect all competitors. The second, Appendices A-U, provides details of rules, rules that apply to particular kinds of racing, and rules that affect only a small number of competitors or officials.

The racing rules are revised and published every four years by World Sailing, the international authority for the sport. This edition became effective on 1 January 2017. Marginal markings indicate important changes to Parts 1-7 and the Definitions of the 2013-2016 edition.

No changes are contemplated before 2020, but any changes determined to be urgent before then will be announced through national authorities and posted on the World Sailing website.
