142 Racing Rules IQ Test

$6.00 each


ISSUE #: 142
THEME:Racing Rules IQ Test
DATE: Aug/Sep 2017

CONTENTS:This issue contains our quadrennial ‘IQ Test’ about the 2017-2020 Racing Rules of Sailing. This year the ‘IQ Test’ has more than 250 questions and takes up the entire newsletter. My goal with this issue was to create a comprehensive, useful resource that would be helpful in: a) finding out how well you understand the racing rules, and b) improving your overall knowledge of the rules. For easy reference, I divided the questions according to the part of the race course where they normally apply. You will see there are 35-40 questions in each of these sections:Starting, Windward leg, Windward mark, Downwind leg, Leeward mark, Finishing and Protests/penalties.
