Every four years, the International Sailing Federation (ISAF) updates the Racing Rules of Sailing. Currently we are racing under the 2013-16 rules, but after 1st January 2017 we will be racing under the 2017-20 rules.
You can download a pdf file of the RRS 2017-20 at http://www.sailing.org/
Why not take a look and make sure that you are familiar with the rules?
Why Not Register as an ISAF Sailor?
The ISAF Sailor Classification Code exists as a service to provide events and classes with an international system of classification for sailors.
You can easily register HERE on the World Sailing website and then, once you are registered, you can apply for the ISAF Sailor Classification Code which documents your sailing cruising and racing qualifications and experience. This can then be accessed by yacht owners, and sailing event organisers, who are looking for racing and/or cruising crew.

CBYA Veterans’ Race 2016
This was a new CBYA TOMs event with a 4-crew TOM having to have a combined age of minimum 260 years, and a 5-crew TOM having a total age of 320 years. The total age of all participating crew was over 1600 years!
Light winds with some variability made for an interesting set of races. Crews were allocated by Rachel to ensure a mix of ages, including a very sprightly octogenarian. John Allison, Hugh Epsom, Karl-Heinz Witte, Piers Armstrong, Edo Volker and Jenny Rawle were nominated race skippers. read more →
