The Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020 – Effective 1 January 2017

Published by under Race Officers,Racing

Just when you have attended the Racing Rules night, World Sailing has now published the next version of the rule book which we will be using next year and into 2020.

The book is available at[20946].pdf and by looking within at the right margin, a vertical line indicates a change, addition or deletion.

The majority of them are simple technical changes to sort out small problems found in the application of the rules. However there is a introduction of the term ‘support person’, those people that are with competitors (coach, parents, etc) who through their behaviours can now cause a competitor to have a penalty. There is also a further additional section around Gross Misconduct.

I am sure in the the next 6 months many of us will interpret all the changes in various ways.

Race Officer Training 2016

Published by under Race Officers

A couple of weeks back, Alan Willis did an excellent presentation for existing and new Race and Assistant Race Officers. You may have missed the evening or just want to go back over the presentation or handouts (a very useful one page summary).

They have now been made available with other helpful material in Club Duty Guidance (available from the left hand webpage options) under Race and Assistant Race Officer .

WEDNESDAY 18th MAY at 8pm

Alan Willis is running his popular training session on how to be a Race Officer next Wednesday 18th May at TBYC club main bar.

The night will focus on Setting the Start Line and Setting the Course but will also cover everything you need to know on how to run a race and have lots of tips on stress free race management plus an opportunity to ask questions!

If you are RO or ARO this year – especially at the beginning of the season – now’s the time for experienced hands to brush up their knowledge and for new ROs to learn the ropes.

Even if you are not RO / ARO this year come along and learn how the starts work – it may help you get off the line better! And at least you will know what the flags actually mean….
