Just a bad PDF viewer

Just a bad PDF viewer unless you spend £10, which it then seems to give you rule definitions when you click on some words. Pointless app - just download the PDF from the website and use iBooks. iBooks works much better

Complete dog's dinner

It would be hard to imagine an app more poorly conceived and executed than this.

As it is a book, and therefore text-based, one might think that the ability to select text would be considered important. As it is a rule book, from which rules are quoted in decisions, you might think it be considered mandatory. None of that here - the rules are presented as graphics, of no use except to read except that without pagination or the ability to adjust font-size or do anything else one expects from an e-book.

All of this to get the privilege of paying for content that is free in the form of an app that is unfriendly, badly designed, and difficult to use.

Take my advice - if you need the Racing Rules of Sailing, download them and use iBooks.

Developer Response ,

We welcome and consider all feedback but it would be useful if you could get in touch with us directly at to explain your concerns over selecting text in a little more detail. You'll be glad to know that while font size adjustment is already in the app for the standard eBooks, we will take a look at updating the more complicate and interactive Integrated eBook in due course.

You're right that the content is available as free pdf downloads but as we tried to get across in the description the key difference is the way the Integrated eBook links all the documents together (literally thousands of pages). The bit you pay for is essentially for the convenience factor; a clever way to find all the relevant cases for a particular rule or all rules and case relating to a specific text search. You can even display a specific rules mode (i.e team racing).

If you're having any issues using the app then please get in touch with our support email and we'll be glad to help you make the most of it.
