The ISAF RRS 2013 – 2016 rules are now available for viewing and can be found by clicking on RRS 2013-2016. These become effective 1st January 2013 and so you should start to acquaint yourselves with the details especially Appendix E which pertains to Radio Sailing Racing Rules.
The MYA will be reviewing the Standard Sailing Instructions to minimise the impact of some of the changes in the rules. It should also be recognised that sail numbers 01, 02 ,03 upwards to 09 will, from January 2013 become single digit numbers for new boats i.e. single digits are now allowed and ‘0’ prefixes will not be allowed. The MYA will be attempting to grandfather existing numbers starting with an ‘0’ so that existing sails do not have to be changed on boats certified before 1st January 2013.
