Race Rules and Documents

All SAMM racing is conducted under the ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing. For those members wanting an up to date copy they can be down-loaded from http://www.sailing.org/documents/racingrules/index.php

Certain rules have been changed to suit our local conditions and very mixed fleet and the “Local Rules – V9” document below, contains these changed rules. They replace those of the same number in the ISAF Rules document and apply all SAMM race events.

Also read the “Notice of Race” as this also contains important information.

The “Protest Procedures” document clarifies our protest procedures.

All documents can be found below as ‘PDF’ files from Adobe or Microsoft Word files, so you can download and read at your leisure (free Adobe Reader download at http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/  and then you can download and print as necessary).

For a good visual guide to the latest rules in practice take a look at YouTube and search for sailing rules – there are quite a few videos to choose from!
