The Racing Rules of Sailing

The Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) governs the sport of sailboat and sailboard racing. It is revised and published every four years by World Sailing. The current edition is The RRS 2017-2020 but will be updated to RRS 2021-24 and posted here soon after 1 June 2020.

The RRS is available for purchase through the World Sailing Executive Office. You can also download the complete document and related publications. Also available are details of World Sailing's Policy on the Reproduction of The Racing Rules.

Changes may be made to the RRS during the four-year period, but only when essential. These changes are published as Changes and Corrections to the RRS.

To support the 2021-2024 RRS, a Study Version has been published which explains the changes and new rules.
