Sail-World.com : Equipment Rules of Sailing for 2013-2016 now available
Equipment Rules of Sailing for 2013-2016 now available

ISAF ©
The Equipment Rules of Sailing (ERS) for 2013-2016 are now available to download online and for the first time, as an iOS application ahead of the worldwide date of implementation on 1 January 2013.

The official ERS iOS Application, available on all mobile Apple devices, allows the user to quickly find information about all aspects of the rules that govern the sport on the water.

It is available to buy now for £0.69 on the iTunes App Store.

ISAF Secretary General Jerome Pels said, 'The ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing is key for sailors, race officials and manufacturers alike. The ERS iOS application follows the same template as the Racing Rules of Sailing iOS application allowing for ease of use.'

Designed for easy reference whilst on the go the application allows the end user to bookmark specific pages, view diagrams up close and breaks down each part in an easy to read manner.

The new edition of the ERS is available to view on the ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing page and you can also order your hardcopy of the ERS 2013-2016 here.

The ISAF Equipment Control Sub-committee is tasked with formulating, revising and publishing the ERS, with any changes ultimately subject to the approval of the ISAF Council, the final decision-making body of the International Sailing Federation.

The formulation of the ERS follows the same democratic process upon which all ISAF decision making is based. Proposed changes to the ERS are suggested in submissions (which can be made by ISAF Member National Authorities, ISAF Class Associations, the ISAF Executive Committee, ISAF Committee Chairmen and the ISAF President) to the ISAF Annual Conference. These are then evaluated carefully by the ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing Working Party and during the meeting of the ISAF Equipment Control Sub-committee at the Conference. That committee passes its recommendations on to the ISAF Council. Approved changes then comes into force in the next edition of the ERS. So the 2013-2016 ERS reflect rule changes approved by the ISAF Council over the past three years.

The publication of the ERS on sailing.org marks their first release ahead of their worldwide date of implementation on 1 January 2013.

ISAF Member National Authorities (MNAs) have already received the latest edition of the ERS to give them due time to prepare their own versions of the ERS 2013-2016 including the relevant national prescriptions and translations.

ISAF Classes have already received the latest edition of the ERS in a text version.

The ISAF policy on the reproduction of the ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing is available online and sets out the rights of MNAs and commercial organizations to use the ERS in publications.
