Product Information

The Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) are revised and published every four years by World Sailing, the international authority for the sport.

The RYA, as the World Sailing, Member National Authority for the UK, makes ‘National Prescriptions’, (which are variations to certain areas within the rules) and publishes them together with other addenda in this very handy, pocket sized, waterproof publication.
This edition has been updated to reflect the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020 and is the essential reference text for every racing sailor, club and race official. It also includes:

  • Definitions
  • The RYA Racing Charter
  • RYA Prescriptions
  • Time and speed charts
  • Race signals
  • International code flags

This publication also uses coloured pages to quickly identify and access the section on ‘When Boats Meet’ to help racers keep out of trouble.

Racing Rules in the World Sailing App

The World Sailing app has been developed in partnership with World Sailing to produce a multi-lingual app for the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020. It will include the rules, case books, call books and associated documents.

The Integrated eBook in the app links the rules to relevant cases and calls and is available to purchase seperately in the app. Click here for more information.


Please note: This is the only publication available that include the RYA’s National Prescriptions which are essential to understand for racing in the UK.
