ISAF has now issued revised Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) which will apply for the next 4 years from January 2013. On this occasion, advised by IRSA, there have been significant changes to the wording of RRS Appendix E which is specific to “radio sailing”. Copies of the new RRS are available from the RYA and, along with the various interpretive publications, will appear in bookshops shortly.
There are implications for the MYA’s Standard Sailing Instructions. The MYA is currently revising the SSIs to be ready for use in the New Year.
