How not to Win Friends and Influence People ............  How? ............. Don’t make an effort to know the rules of the road.


There are many books on the subject and just as many apps that can be downloaded to your smart phone, some for free some for as little as R20 to R30 ........... It is a very small price to pay.


Alternatively you could just click on the Rules Tab on this site or on the subject links in the list of topics below to go to those pages.


This is not by any means a definitive list, but for the newcommer to radio sailing ..... and I would venture to be so bold as to say .... “SOME OLD TIMERS AS WELL” .... Could do themselves and us, a favour, by reviewing the rules here as well.

This is the ICON for a Mobile Smart Phone APP that can be downloaded to your phone from the Play Store. It costs a few Rand's but is well worth the investment………… Give it a go !

This is a FREE online interactive learning tool to teach and test your knowledge of the rules.
