Rules, Rules, Rules... It's not why we get into sailing, is it! At least I hope not. For most of us, the Racing Rules are a necessary evil, something we know we ought to know, but don't know as well as we ought. Which means there's opportunity here. If you can be bothered to know this part of the game better than your competitors, then you'll have the upper hand should a close-quarters situation arise. So what are you waiting for? Get learning!
