This manual is designed to be a learning tool for judges who are gathering knowledge and experience with the aim of becoming International Judges. It also should be a reference guide for exiting International Judges with the aim of contributing to consistency in judging all over the world.
Since our sport is constantly changing and evolving, a manual such as this must be a living document that needs to be updated constantly. Contributions to improve it, including new subjects and to keep it up to date, are always welcome. Updated versions will be posted on the World Sailing website as changes and additions are made.
Special thanks are due to the many experienced International Judges who contributed to this manual.
Andres Perez, Chairman
