At the ISAF Conference this year, ISAF approved two urgent rule changes to the Racing Rules of Sailing. These rule changes will come into force on 1 January 2015.
Details of the changes along with other corrections and changes that have been approved since 2013 are available on the ISAF website at the following address: http://www.sailing.org/documents/racingrules/index.php.
The first change concerns the addition of a new rule 6 in connection with betting. For the background on this area, you can read submissions 036-14 and 127-14 which are available on the ISAF website here: http://www.sailing.org/2014-conference.php. The text of the new Betting and Anti-Corruption Code will be available shortly on the ISAF website once the new ISAF Regulations have been processed following the Conference.
The second change concerns match racing and the deletion of rule 22.3 concerning boats moving backwards. The relevant submission is 172-14.
