While we are reading try ISAF regs try 1.01.1.

It is my issue with the regs being the last say on safety for rallies.

They were never intended as such. There are some differences between shorthanded offshore cruising, and offshore racing.

I agree that yes they are however a great reference for cruisers, and a good starting point for safety. We have used them thus ourselves, but have deviated when we have found, researched and evaluated what believe to be a better solution.
