Appeals Book History

From 1932 until the fall of 1942, appeals were decided by the Executive Committee of the North American Yacht Racing Union and were published as supplements to the minutes of the NAYRU annual meetings. Beginning in September, 1942, appeals were decided by an Appeals Committee whose members were elected at annual meetings. Today, members of the Appeals Committee are appointed by the US SAILING Board of Directors for three year terms, two members being appointed each year.

The appeals were first published separately in 1950. For the second edition in 1953 they were conformed to the new NAYRU racing rules with the help of their originator, Harold S. Vanderbilt. Subsequent editions were published in 1962, 1965, 1970, 1978, 1982, 1986, 1990, 1994, 1997, 2002 and 2005
