Suggestion for rules

What if the rules were given an overhaul, so that instead of a weighty tomb (I'm assuming....), tri rules were covered on a single page, in plain English.  To get it all in, writing would need to be succinct, plus every rule would have to count, so you could get all the 'sensible' one's in.

That would mean there would be no room for stupidity, like not being able to unzip your top

Rule 1. Read the current rules before deciding that they need to be re-written.

Seems only you have an issue with having your top open......

Wax your chest do you ?

Do you have a link where I can read them online?

He he  Nah, just silly rules mate. I've said my bit, and as per the unwritten rule of forums, I'm trying to not go on.  This is a thread I started so I could gain different perspectives and perhaps learn something.

You could always read the rules if you want to learn something

Learn that if you turn up and go to a race briefing, most competent race directors will tell you what you can and can't do.

same as the 2013 rules - no changes for this year.  there will be a new rulebook for 2015 as there are amendments and new rules coming.  I know what one new rule is about, but don't know the details - so don't ask for anything further.

and FD - if you want a real rulebook to read - download the ITU competition rules.  all 177 pages of it (not all rules but lots of other stuff as well).

If there weren't so many, then we wouldn't think FB was so clever.

 Oh man, you can't say that.  That's lighting the fuse, then running away.  Now all I can think about is what the rule might be.

FYI, I'm about half way through reading the 2012 rule book, so soon I'll all be gemmed up
