The World Sailing app 2017-2020 is a partnership between World Sailing and the RYA to produce a unique multi-lingual World Sailing app for the Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020, cases, calls and associated documents.
The app contains dedicated areas for any participating country where the National Authority can publish any documentation related to the 2017-2020 rules such as translated rules, local prescriptions, case books and guidance documents.
The key difference to any other digital rules product is the ‘Integrated eBook’ which is available to purchase in-app. It cleverly links all the documents together and will incorporate the translated text of any participating country when it becomes available.
With the Integrated eBook, you can very quickly identify any case relevant to a particular rule, search for specific cases or even a case that may be associated to a text search.
A rules mode in the settings allows the Integrated eBook to display Windsurfing, Team, Match, Radio or Kiteboard Racing amendments for your convenience.
There are also useful features such as pop-ups for all definitions where they are referenced in the text; this helps refer back to the detail of the definition without navigating off the page.
This app will be updated regularly with content as it becomes available through World Sailing or participating countries.
