Top 5 Rule 42 Mistakes
and how to avoid them!

National Judge & Umpire, Jack Fenwick of the RYA, takes a close look at the 5 most common mistakes and what is and isn't permitted when it comes to RRS42 (propulsion) in this 3 minute summary.
The video covers; 
1) Sculling - Below close hauled
2) Trigger Pull - Without turning
3) Body Pumping - After the start
4) Rocking - Without turning
5) Pumping - Going Downwind 

Thanks to the Royal Yachting Association for this excellent production. I am sure it will help sailors' understanding of the written rules on propulsion. The footage stars Iona in her RS Aero 5 on a sunny day at Lymington Town Sailing Club.
