On behalf of the team at South African Sailing I would like to offer the best wishes for 2017 and we look forward, with your assistance, to continuing the growth of our amazing sport during the year!
As you may be aware, the Racing Rules of Sailing governing the sport are revised and updated every four years. With effect from 1 January 2017 World Sailing has updated the Racing Rules of Sailing and these new rules are in effect from 1 January 2017 until December 2020.
In line with other sailing organisations around the world, and due to the prohibitive cost of printing, we have taken the decision that South African Sailing will not be publishing a booklet of the racing rules but rather have included links to sites where these can be accessed and/ or downloaded for your use.
