What is it & how does it work?

The World Sailing Question & Answer service is designed to assist World Sailing Race Officials in applying the rules consistently.

The Q&A Panel is appointed by the Chairmen of the Race Officials Committee and the Racing Rules Committee.

The current members of the Q&A Panel are:

Chairman - Marina Psichogiou (GRE)
Vice-Chairman - Tatania Ermakova (RUS)
Mats Bjorklund (FIN) Bence Böröcz (HUN) Lance Burger (RSA)
Natalia Chubenko (RUS) Rosemary Collins (AUS) Giorgio Davanzo (ITA)
Russell Green (NZL) Rick Hatch (CAN) Timo Haß (GER)
Sungchul Jeong (KOR) Ewa Jodlowska (POL) Michal Jodlowski (POL)
Trevor Lewis (GBR) Flavio Naveria (ARG) Andrus Poksi (EST)
Manuel Santos e Silva (ESP) David de Vries (AHO) Bruno de Wannemaeker (BEL)

Questions may be submitted to the Q&A Panel by any World Sailing Race Official or Member National Authority (preferably through a World Sailing Race Official) via the World Sailing Executive Office. The Panel may rephrase the question for clarity and may publish the answer online if the question is considered to be of general interest.

Each published Q&A will have an expiration date. Prior to expiration, each Q&A will be reviewed by the Q&A Panel and will be recommended to the RRC and ROC for submission as a Case, Call, or rule change; for inclusion in an applicable World Sailing manual or other publication; or for extension or removal from the website.

Unlike the World Sailing Cases, which are authoritative interpretations and explanations of the rules, these answers are solely to assist Race Officials in applying the rules consistently.

Questions should be submitted to the World Sailing Office by email.
