New Rules presentation on RYA-site

By E-mail I was notified about a link on the RYA-site. (Thanks Brass!)
It is a extensive PowerPoint presentation about all the changes in the Racing Rules of Sailing 2009-2012, made by Trevor Lewis.

From the RYA site:

Many Clubs will be looking for something to help fill up their Winter programme. Down loading this PowerPoint presentation could help, with a little homework any qualified race official or proficient sailor should be able to deliver this hour long presentation. On the other hand your local Regional Rules Advisor may be able to find a local expert to come and deliver it for you. To find your local Advisor, please email (see RYA site)

Download the PowerPoint presentation accessible from the link at the bottom of the page, and open it up in presentation mode. The first slides will help you set up your computer to be able to deliver it. Slide 4 is a menu where you should choose the last option, “Quick Guide.” This is the part to use.

For those wanting to prepare in depth or you are curious to discover more, the rest of the presentation will provide you with a detailed step by step route through all the new changes in the Racing Rules of Sailing 2009 – 2012.
I haven't had the time to go over all the slides, but from what I did read, was already impressed. Beautiful and very thorough indeed!



  1. For those that can download the RYA slideshow and open it in Powerpoint, there are additional speakers notes and discussion points in the Notes to some, but not all slides.

    To see these Notes, change to Normal View and Notes are shown at the foot of the screen.

    You can print slides with notes by choosing File>Print> then selecting Print What>Notes Pages.

    In Normal View or printed out, you can't see the animated changes that appear in the proper slideshow, so you might need to look at both to get the best value.


  2. Dear Brass;
    First of all, I have to thank you for your introducing this PowerPoint presentation.
    I am sure this is valuable and suitable tool for understanding the new RRS. I would like to use this as teaching materials, and then I am now translating into Japanese.
    There are some unclear words in it. Would you please let me know what the meanings of 'left-hand banks' and 'right-hand banks' are in page 70, Rule 20 explanation?
    Because the word is not in my book dictionary and electronic dictionary.
    Thanks in advance.
