Make sure you're ready for the 2021-2024 changes to the Racing Rules of Sailing with the RYA rules books. The new editions are now available from the RYA shop.

Updated every four years by World Sailing, the Racing Rules of Sailing are compulsory for racing sailors around the globe.

As the Member National Authority for the UK, the RYA Racing Rules of Sailing 2021-2024 (order code YR1, RRP £10.99) not only features the World Sailing rules in full, but is also the only publication to contain the RYA Racing Charter, Racing Rules Guidance and the RYA National Prescriptions - essential for racing in the UK.

The compact, ring-bound and waterproof book is perfect for taking afloat. It covers not only the fundamentals of the race itself, including racing conduct and what is fair and unfair, but also details things like protests, hearings and appeals. You'll find everything competitors, judges and umpires need to know.

The RYA also publish two further rules titles to help sailors understand and reference the rules with ease. Both have been updated to reflect the changes coming into effect on 01 January 2021.

The RYA Handy Guide to the Racing Rules 2021-2024 (order code YR7, RRP £4.49) is ideal for competitors just getting started in racing. It covers all the basics simply and clearly. Available as both a pocket-sized book and an eBook, access the rules quickly and easily - whenever and wherever you need them.

Also in the series is RYA The Racing Rules Explained 2021-2024 eBook (order code E-G80, RRP £18.99) written by Trevor Lewis, former Chair of the RYA Racing Committee, a World Sailing International Judge and acknowledged rules expert.

The comprehensive guide contains detailed analysis and explanations of each rule, showing how they might be applied in different scenarios. The eBook is easily searchable and also features case book examples from World Sailing, RYA, USA and Canada making it the most relevant title available.

Steen Ingerslev, RYA Publications Manager commented: "We work really hard to ensure all our titles are as relevant, up to date and accessible as possible and have made huge advances with our eBooks and digital resources in recent years. These new editions really are essential reading for anyone racing in the UK and the perfect Christmas present for the competitive sailors in your life."
