In addition to the Racing Rules of Sailing, there are two very important documents that apply at every regatta: the Notice of Race and the Sailing Instructions. Because both of these documents are officially part of the rules for the regatta, every sailor should make sure they read and understand these documents at every event they attend.
The following chart is an overview of the information each of these documents provides – and why that information is important as sailors decide to participate, prepare to attend, arrive at the regatta, and actually compete in the races.

Every sailor under the age of 18 MUST have their parent or legal guardian sign the Waiver of Liability on the Entry Form for each regatta.
