  • There are different regulations and rules for the many types of sail racing; depending on the type of boat, the type of course, of class and the type of competition. We will focus here on basic crossing rules that apply in most types of sail racing.

    A boat on starboard tack sails with the wind blowing onto the starboard (right) side, and the mainsail on the port (left) side.A boat on port tack sails with the wind blowing onto the port (left) side, and the mainsail on the starboard (right) side.

    Port / StarboardThis is the most common rule used while racing and overrides most other rules. A boat on Port tack shall give way to a boat on Starboard tack. You should always be aware of boats around you but especially when you are on port tack as you need to give way.


  • Windward VS Leeward

    When two boats are on the same tack and overlapped, the windward boat is the boat that is closest to the wind. This boat must keep clear of all other boats to leeward. A common situation is when a boat is sailing downwind on a collision course with a boat on the same tack sailing upwind. The boat sailing downwind must give way to the boat sailing upwind.SAILING BASICS

  • Clear Ahead / Clear AsternWhen two boats are on the same tack and not overlapped, the boat clear astern must keep clear of the boat clear ahead. Basically if you are passing a boat on the same tack you should keep clear of them.Buoy RoomWhen two or more boats on the same tack are approaching a buoy, the boats on the outside shall give room to the boats on the inside to pass the mark. There are more complicated rules to this regarding the 2 boat lengths circle but we will not address them here.

  • IRC Rating Point System for Ranking CalculationsEach boat is given an IRC coefficient based on the boat specificities (sails, hull, mast). Scoring calculations are done by weighting racing time with this IRC coefficient. That means that the boat arriving first is not necessarily the winner, it will depend on its IRC rating. IRC Ratings of the boats:Oceanis 40: 1.011Oceanis 46: 1.037
