KNOW THE RULES!
Do you know who has room at the mark? Do you know the right of way rules? SISA subscribes to US Sailing Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016 for all events. The Racing Rules of Sailing are published by the International Sailing Federation, the international authority for the sport (http://www.sailing.org/rrs) . One of the the most important functions of rules is safety as well as promoting good sportsmanship. If you have questions about sailing conduct on the water or just want to test your knowledge, we have a fun link for you. The link below has three levels of difficulty. In each one you are asked to respond to a particular situation on the water. After you answer, you are given an explanation of the correct response along with the applicable rule. Give it a try!
Partly cloudy. Scattered showers and isolated
thunderstorms in the evening. Then isolated showers and
thunderstorms after midnight. Thunderstorms may produce gusty
winds and small hail in the evening. Chance of precipitation
30 percent. Lows 51 to 56. Northwest winds 10 to 15 mph.
