The Racing Rules of Sailing for 2021-2024
Message to Members from US Sailing

From all of us at US Sailing, we hope that you are having a wonderful holiday season. We have had a challenging yet productive year and would like to thank our valued members for your ongoing support and commitment to our organization and the sport of sailing in U.S.
US Sailing takes great pride in administering and providing The Racing Rules of Sailing to members of our organization. The rules provide integrity to competitive sailing and are an integral part of our sport. Sailboat racing relies on the rules to ensure that competitions are fair, consistent, and keeping sailors safe on the water.
The Racing Rules of Sailing is published every four years by World Sailing, the international authority for the sport. These rules, amended by U.S. “prescriptions,” govern sailboat racing in the United States and in the portions of international races that pass through U.S. waters.
The Racing Rules of Sailing for 2021-2024 takes effect on January 1, 2021.
US Sailing has developed a NEW mobile-optimized Racing Rules App that includes the racing rules and other resources, including the ability to file a protest through the app, a whiteboard for diagramming boat-on-boat interactions, and an extensive resource library. The text of the rulebook is fully searchable and there is also a traditional index. US Sailing will continue to add more useful and innovative features to the app as we move forward.
In line with our commitment to sustainability, the mobile app is available at no cost to all US Sailing members and is the primary distribution channel for The Racing Rules of Sailing for 2021-2024. Please note that we will not be automatically mailing copies of the printed rulebook to members in 2021. All members are entitled to purchase one printed rulebook for a flat fee of only $7.00 and may order additional copies at the standard 25% member discount rate.
The app is ready for download! You can download the Racing Rules App from our new Racing Rules of Sailing web page. Click here to learn more and download.

The paper and waterproof versions of The Racing Rules of Sailing for 2021-2024 and the Sailor’s Guide to the Racing Rules are now available for pre-order.
US Sailing is also featuring a series of products to help sailors understand and interpret the rules from experts, including Dave Perry’s Understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing through 2024 and 100 Best Racing Rules Quizzes. These publications are now available for purchase.
The Racing Rules App and our menu of new rules products represents US Sailing’s commitment to developing and providing members with innovative tools designed to enhance your racing experience. We hope you enjoy the Racing Rules App and we look forward to hearing your feedback on the new product.
Thank you and we are all looking forward to seeing you on the water in 2021!
