Racers in Australia will now benefit from the inclusion of The Australian Blue e-Book within World Sailing’s Racing Rules App.

The rules, which apply to all sailors competing in Australian waters, are easily searchable on your mobile or tablet via the App. The App also comes with a handy tool which cross-references rules with historical case studies and relevant call books.

With all this information stored in one accessible place, it’s a must-have for anyone serious about competing in international waters.

It also opens up opportunities for other countries wishing to share their rules via the App.

Steen Ingerslev, the RYA’s Head of Publications, explains: “We are very excited to welcome Australia on board. This is great news if you are an international racer and we look forward to other countries raising their game by bringing their own versions of the rules to the App.”

The App is the result of a combined collaboration by World Sailing and the RYA. Download it for free from the World Sailing App page on the RYA website.

Already got the App? Look out for more countries coming on board soon. Visit the World Sailing App 2017-2020 page on the RYA website for regular updates.

The RYA’s book ‘The Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-20’ is also available to buy. Visit http://www.rya.org.uk/shop for more details.
