The ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing are revised and published every four years by the International Sailing Federation, the world governing body for the sport.
The current edition, The Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016, came into effect on 1 January 2013.
The Racing Rules of Sailing includes two main sections. The first, Parts 1-7, contains rules that affect all competitors. The second section contains appendices that provide details of rules, rules that apply to particular kinds of racing, and rules that affect only a small number of competitors or officials.
