The Sail Canada Appeals Book; 2017 Edition
Sail Canada is pleased to announce the release of the Sail Canada Appeals Book; Interpretations of The Racing Rules of Sailing, 2017-2020, April 2017 edition.
The Sail Canada Appeals, Interpretations of the Racing Rules, 2017 – 2020 April 2017 Edition brings the Sail Canada Appeals up to date with the current version of the Racing Rules of Sailing. This was accomplished through a complete review of each appeal to rewrite decisions as though they were decided under the 2017 – 2020 rules. Along with updating the appeals to the current rules, there were numerous editorial revisions. Some diagrams were redrawn so that the wind always comes from the top of the page. As a result of the review, Appeal 22 was deleted.
The April 2017 Edition includes two appeals that were completed since the February 2013 Edition.
The Sail Canada Appeals Committee hears new appeals on an ongoing basis. Appeals that augment interpretations that are already published will be added sequentially to the book. Revisions will be published periodically to the Sail Canada web site (www.sailing.ca) in PDF format.
The Sail Canada Appeals, Interpretations of the Racing Rules, 2017–2020 was prepared by the members of the Sail Canada Appeals Committee: Lynne Beal, Andrew Alberti, Rick Hatch, Don Martin, Warren Nethercote, and Leo Reise. Our secretary, Irene McNeill supports the work of the committee.
Sail Canada thanks the dedicated volunteers of the Sail Canada Appeals Committee for all of their time and effort in the creation and update of the Sail Canada Appeals Book!
