CRYA ‘Standard’ Notice of Race and Sailing Instructions for 2017- 2020

By John Ball, CRYA Technical Director.

The CRYA provides a model (or skeleton) Notice of Race (NOR) for use in regattas, especially CRYA sanctioned Regional or National Class Championship events. This model NOR meets the minimum mandatory requirements as set out in the Racing Rules of Sailing (the RRS) Appendix K and is designed to fit on one page for publication in the CRYA quarterly News letter. Be sure to check the lead times for publication in the Newsletter.

Every four years, following the Summer Olympic Games, World Sailing (Formerly the ISAF) issues an updated version of the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) to be valid for the next four year cycle.

The CRYA provides a model (or skeleton) set of Sailing Instructions (SI) for use in regattas, especially CRYA sanctioned Regional or National Class Championship events. We have prepared a CRYA Model set of SI to go with the current RRS and it is available here.
