Every 4 years World Sailing updates and changes the Racing Rules of Sailing based on proposals and corrections that are sent in over the course of the year. These are done after an Olympic year (which was supposed to be this year) so our new set comes in effect Jan 1 2021.
There are some significant changes that affect Race Officers, Judges and Sailors. There are changes the definitions and in Parts 1, 2 and 3.
The new rules are available on the World Sailing and are linked below

Also, for Regatta Organizers:
The NoR and SI template has changed a bit in keeping with the new rules. However they will not be published with the RRS for 2021-24. They are now located on the World Sailing website but I am including them here to make it easier to find!
