This is the first in a series of posts to introduce and explain the Racing Rules of Sailing. Each Monday a new section will be added to introduce you to a new rule or rules. Each post will have a video explanation, a written fact sheet and then a quiz to check your knowledge.
To help you with learning the Rules make sure that you have a full copy of the Racing Rules of Sailing book available. This can be downloaded through the World Sailing App, from the World Sailing Website or purchased from the RYA Shop.
