Rulesguide by Wim Thijs 1989 | 2

For all of you who have been mailing me asking for a post in English today, here's the translation. I will keep in mind that the majority of readers is no longer 'local', so sorry about that and I will do better in the future.

From my archive I rooted out a picture and scanned it. (see previous post) It is a smaller version of a big poster (A1-size) made by Wim Thijs and published in 1989 by the KNWV (our MNA). For years I've been looking for this poster. If there's a reader who still has a copy and doesn't mind parting with it, I would appreciate to hear about it. We can alway negotiate a fair price.
The rule numbers are no longer in use. I'm thinking about making a new updated version.

How many of you were able to get the gist of the post just from the Dutch version?


  1. I think that poster is great. Before you go to the effort of creating one you should look at the one right at the beginning of "Understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing through 2008" by Dave Perry. The diagram is I think done by Brad Dellenbaugh since he does all of the illustrations in the book.

  2. Thanks AndrewA. I have this book but never noticed this page.
    I like Brad's talking fish, they're great.
