Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020

World Sailing has published the Study Version of the Racing Rules for 2017-2020.

"This document is a ‘Study Version of the Racing Rules for 2017-2020.’ This is a special document designed to provide you with the reasons for each change in the Definitions and in the rules of Parts 1 – 7 in the 2017 rulebook.

This document contains two sections. The first is the World Sailing edition of The Racing Rules of Sailing for 2017-2020 with each new word shown in red font. Also, in the right margin are comments that show the basis for each rule that has different wording in the 2017-2020 RRS from its wording in the 2013-2016 RRS.

Changes in the racing rules are the result of Submissions made to World Sailing (formerly ISAF) from Member National Authorities, Class Associations and World Sailing Committee Chairmen. Each Submission to change a racing rule contains four sections: a statement of Purpose or Objective; a Proposal, showing exactly how the author would like to change a particular racing rule; the Current Position, which is the current wording of the rule; and the Reasons for proposing the change. In the Proposal, new wording is shown in bold and underlined and deleted words are shown struck through. Studying the Reasons for the Proposal in the original Submission that led to a rule change should help you understand why that rule change was made.

Please note that some new rules in the 2017 rulebook are not worded exactly as they were worded in the original Proposal. These changes in wording were made, usually by the World Sailing Racing Rules Working Party, for clarity, for ease of translation, or to make the new rule consistent with other rules in the rulebook."

Viper 640 Regatta

LCYC is hosting our third annual Lake Champlain Viper 640 Regatta, with 18 boats attending!

Things are going to be busy around the club, including a lot of vehicles and trailers on the lawn and a need to occupy most of the dock space on Saturday morning, Saturday evening, early Sunday morning before racing and Sunday afternoon during the haul out period. Please plan accordingly. Racing will be held on Saturday and Sunday in either Shelburne Bay, Burlington Bay or on the Broad lake west of Shelburne Point depending on wind and weather.

There should be some exciting racing, so come on out to spectate. Please just stay out of the way of the racing.

Please make sure to show some great LCYC hospitality to the visiting sailors. For more information, documents, and results, click on the LC Viper 640 logo or "Read More".

Date: 

Saturday, September 24, 2016 (All day) to Sunday, September 25, 2016 (All day)

The Lake Champlain Yacht Club is a member-run yacht club located in a sheltered cove on the southwest shore of Shelburne Bay in Shelburne, Vermont, USA. We offer moorings, activities, and community for our members, most of whom own a sailboat or powerboat. The object of the Club is to promote and encourage boating and sailing on Lake Champlain, while emphasizing racing, cruising, and education, without financial gain. Please let us know if you are interested in membership at LCYC!

Lake Champlain offers some of the best freshwater cruising in North America. The beautiful scenery and charming lakeside destinations make it a great place to explore. LCYC organizes several rendezvous events during the sailing season. Spontaneous cruising events also materialize throughout the season. We have a number of scheduled events planned for the summer of 2015. Cruisers are out and about just about every weekday and weekend throughout the summer.
