Dinghy Sailing Instructions

All dinghy races conducted by Newhaven Yacht Squadron are governed by the current Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS), the prescriptions and Special Regulations of the rules of the relevant classes (except as any of these are altered by these Sailing Instructions) and by these Sailing Instructions outlined in the document below.

Our club dinghies are equipped to be sailed in NYS events with a patrol boat. The safety equipment is based on the Australian Sailing Special Regulations part 2 for off the beach boats. https://cdn.revolutionise.com.au/site/viomvjqcwylys2s2.pdf
