For anyone who wishes to know the rules of the water, Mayo Sailing Club is hosting a lecture entitled The Rules of Racing by Ed Alcock on Thursday February 23 at 7.30pm in the GMIT, Castlebar. It will outline the laws that govern racing on the water. Many boats, big and small, engage in the sport of racing. The Racing Rules of Sailing govern the conduct of yacht racing, dinghy racing, windsurfing, kite surfing, and virtually any other form of racing around a course with more than one vessel while powered by the wind. The forthcoming lecture will cover topics like rights and obligations on the water, giving way, keeping clear, red flags, and protest forms.
