Racing Rules of Sailing

Don’t get stuck in the detail to start with, keep to the basic

A bit of Trivia Where do the words Port and Starboard originate from? In times of old ships were steered by a Steering board mounted on the right side of the ship, from this we get Starboard. Consequently the ship could not be berthed on this side, so the left side of the ship became the port side.
