THE RACING SAILOR’S GUIDE
The ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing with Quizzes, Illustrations, Definitions, and Signal Flags.
(Edited by racing sailors, and an International Umpire and Judge.)
You-Tack! is the ONLY iPhone app to offer the official ISAF Racing Rules of Sailing with: Illustrations, Rules, Rules Comments, 3D Animated Quizzes (with an answer review Scoreboard), all the Racing Signals with detailed descriptions, the Official ISAF Definitions with Illustrations, and Other Sailing Terms.
It’s easy to use, with cross-links between the rules and definitions. Test your knowledge in various Call Book real Quiz situations, track the rules you’re unsure of, and keep them in your Favorites folder, so you can quickly brush up before the next race, or when it’s over, on the club porch, or if you’re “In the Room”.
Features included in Version 1.3:
•The rules are the official rules from The International Sailing Association Federation, current to January 2010, as printed in The Racing Rules of Sailing 2009 - 2012 (RRS).
Within each Rule there are hyperlinks to other noted Rules and Definitions, along with many Comments for each rule, along with illustrations.
Add any rule to your Favorites list for quick reference.
•To search for a rule select the Search icon (the magnifying glass) in the upper right corner of the header bar.
You can search for: any part of a rule word or number by selecting ALL; a specific rule number by selecting Rule No.; only the rule name by selecting Rule Name; or any word or number found in a rule definition by selecting Definition.
