Racing Documents and Rules

The Notice of Race (NOR), Sailing Instructions (SI) and Course Sheets are the key documents that you need to go racing, but they are underpinned by a series of other documents that you are required / assumed to have read and be knowledgable about because those requirements apply to you and your boat.

For starters there’s the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS), backed up by the World Sailing Case Book, a set of authoritative interpretations of the rules for uncommon situations or where a a context needs to be considered that is too involved to be a simple rule for most sailors.

Each class including Couta Boats has Class Rule that apply and SSCBC has a series of Codes and Policies that apply and they are listed here as well.
