Competitors in the sport of sailing are governed by a body of rules that they are expected to follow and enforce. A fundamental principle of sportsmanship is that when competitors break a rule they will promptly take a penalty or retire.
Races will be governed by the Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS), and the prescriptions of Australian Sailing (AS) , except if any of these are changed by these Sailing Instructions.
Supplementary Sailing Instructions may be issued for specific races. Where there is conflict with these Sailing Instructions the supplementary instructions shall apply.
Sailing Instructions Required to Compete

Each boat shall have its name clearly indicated on the hull and identifying registered class number with insignia and/or Club registration number on all sails with black Maltese Cross on mainsail

NB: After three (3) races a boat may be disqualified if it fails to comply with the above, with the exception of Olympic Class Boats. This will be after discussion with Sailing Committee.
