The World Sailing Racing Rules Questions and Answers are published on the World Sailing website as a joint responsibility of the Racing Rules Committee and the Race Officials Committee.
The answers are prepared by experienced Race Officials and are intended to provide a service to Race Officials, Member National Authorities and World Sailing Class Associations whereby they may submit questions through World Sailing concerning the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS).
The answers are not authoritative interpretations and explanations of the RRS, but nevertheless represent an important service by providing carefully considered opinions of experienced Race Officials.
It is intended that these questions and answers are further considered for inclusion in the World Sailing Case Book/Call Books.
This service is not to be used as a ‘substitute’ appeal process, but is simply to provide considered opinions on questions on the RRS.
