The charter can be found at the front of the RYA edition of the Racing Rules of Sailing 2021-2024 (the yellow pages after the definitions), or on the RYA website at www.rya.org.uk/racingrules.’
Recommended wording in an Entry Form to enable competitors to declare their acceptance of the RYA Racing Charter:

Under the umbrella of its Racing Charter the RYA provides a range of guidance booklets and notes on the Racing Rules of Sailing and the organisation of racing, which can be found here.
Through our network of regional rules advisors and regional race management coordinators, whose contact details can be found below, the RYA is able to support clubs and classes with training which can be adapted and made bespoke for the types of racing commonly undertaken. For more information on some of our standard club courses please see here.
Our racing rules and race management advisory services can provide prompt, informal, advice to RYA members and affiliates.
