Steen Ingerslev. "Not only will you be able to access the rules
and the associated cases in a quick, easy and very portable format when you

coming months, so that we end up with one integrated eBook linking rules and
cases in multiple languages.”
World Sailing Chief Executive Officer Andy Hunt said, "In an age where
we're never without a mobile device, the need to deliver information in a
well presented, easy to access manner has never been more important.
"In partnership with the RYA, we have created a dynamic World Sailing

The Integrated eBook is the clever tool in the app enabling the user to
navigate seamlessly between rules and cases, highlighting a number of cases
per rule in both overview and full case details formats.
It is available to purchase in-app and includes a rules mode in the settings

the user's convenience.
There are also useful features such as a simple to navigate search function
to find all relevant rules and equipment rules and pop-ups for all
definitions where they are referenced in the text. These pop-ups help refer
back to the detail of the definition without navigating off the page.

The Racing Rules of Sailing 2017-2020 and the Equipment Rules of Sailing are
available now in the app, both in the Integrated eBook and as basic free
eBooks. The RYA and World Sailing Case Books will be added in due course,
followed by the other documents in the spring. Additional languages will be
added as and when other MNAs come on board.
The World Sailing App can be downloaded for FREE through the App Store - https://appsto.re/gb/3LVReb.i and the Integrated eBook is available as an in-app purchase. It will be
available to Google Play and the Windows Store in due course.
