The RYA’s most detailed racing title yet is now available to download as an interactive eBook. The Racing Rules Explained 2017-2020 is the only book on racing that covers each rule in detail.
Included is thorough coverage of the interpretations made in the World Sailing Cases, the latest versions of the appeals published by three national authorities – the RYA, US Sailing and Sail Canada – and even some of the World Sailing Match Racing and Team Racing Calls.
So whether you are a competitor, race official or aspiring race official, this book delivers a high level of understanding.
Dick Rose, Secretary of the World Sailing Racing Rules Committee, said the author Trevor Lewis is brilliant at thinking outside the box when it comes to explaining new rules.
He added: “Trevor stands out among ‘rulies’ as one with a special talent for applying the rules when a new situation crops up that the rest of the ‘rulie’ community has never seen. As a serious competitor or judge who wants to be thoroughly prepared for a protest, request for redress or a rule 69 hearing, you will be well served by this book.”
It’s just as well – as this cycle’s Racing Rule Book contains 93 new rule changes.
Luckily the handy ‘What’s New’ summary gives a useful, easy to understand overview of these changes, deftly putting them into context.
The eBook format also allows for simple navigation between rules and case studies enabling you find and link the information you need easily.
Essential for racers: The Racing Rules Explained is priced at £17.99 from the RYA bookshop www.rya.org.uk/go/shop
Note: The Racing Rules Explained 2017-2020 was written by Trevor Lewis, former Chair of the RYA Racing Committee, a World Sailing International Judge and an acknowledged rules expert.
