Many of the existing Racing Rules of Sailing published by World Sailing does not fit very well for the M32 Class. The racing is more intense and the boats maneuver differently. Also the tactics and strategy is often very different in multihull compared with keel boats.
The M32 Edition of the racing rules is a booklet with the complete rules showing the changes that are made for the M32 class. They can be found, together with examples and explanations at the Official Notice Board.
To change the rules you need a permission from World Sailing. The Class together with Aston Harald Sports and the Organizing Authority applies directly to World Sailing for these permissions. All events using the changed rules needs this permission.
The M32 is a one design class with a closed class rule. That means that if the rule does not specifically say that you may – then you shall not.
The M32ICA encourages close racing where the main focus of competition relies on the sailors’ skill. Any attempt to gain advantage through equipment or its use will be pursued and corrected.
