Introductory Rules for Racing


World Sailing

The Introductory Rules apply for Optimists sailing in "Green" fleet at LBSC.

World Sailing - Introductory Rules for Racing 
In order to help newcomers to sailboat racing, In 2008 ISAF produced a one page set of Introductory Rules for Racing complete with some explanatory diagrams.
The aim of the Introductory Rules for Racing is simple; make as it easy as possible for people to start racing. Consequently the Introductory Rules are as basic as possible, although they remain compatible with the principles and fundamental rules in the full ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS).
The Introductory Rules are being developed as part of Objective 2 of the ISAF Strategic Plan to encourage new entrants to racing and to ensure the rules are not a barrier to participation. ISAF intend that people of all ages can race using these rules without needing any knowledge of the full RRS.
