The Case Book - Interpretations of the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) 2013-2016 has been published on the ISAF website.
The Case Book complements The Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016, which came into effect on 1 January 2013, and provides details on the application of the RRS to around 100 scenarios. The principal aims of the Cases are to clarify an important meaning in a rule or to increase the understanding of a complex rule.

The new edition of the Case Book follows a complete review of all the cases previously published and includes all new cases adopted by the ISAF Council since 2009. Many cases have been rewritten, some only slightly but others extensively, to illustrate as clearly as possible the application of the 2013-2016 RRS.
A Case Book Supplement is issued at the start of each year and published on the ISAF website. It contains new cases approved by the ISAF Racing Rules Committee and the Council during the ISAF Annual Conference, and sometimes existing cases are revised or deleted. In addition, each year the version of the Case Book that appears on the ISAF website will be revised to include new cases and to reflect any other changes made in that year's annual supplement.
