Americas Cup and US Sailing make new website

US Sailing, the national governing body of sailing joined forces with

Americas Cup and Ian Murray to start a new website called

www.startsailing.org,  for people who want to learn how to start sailing. It

describes from the types of boats to where to sail and everything in between.

Look at the new website on AmericasCup.com or ussailing.org.

GENERAL RULES:

When the wind comes across the boats on opposite sides, the boat with the wind on the left (port) side must give way to the boat with the wind on the right (starboard) side.

When the wind comes across the boats on the same side and they are not overlapped, the boat behind (clear astern) must keep clear of the boat (clear) ahead.

When the wind comes across the boats on the same side and they are overlapped, the boat on the windward (upwind) side must keep clear of the other leeward (downwind) boat.

Strategy

The start is critical
4-minutes before the start the boats enter the starting area and begin an intricate, furious pre-start duel, with the two boats engaging in a furious one-on-one battle to gain the controlling position on the race course. At the starting signal the boats will cross the start line and begin the first windward leg to the windward mark.
