Rule 90 "Have Fun"

Wm. J. Kolkmeyer Yachts, LLC image History of Rule 90 and most frequently asked questions.

Let’s start with the questions:

Most frequently asked question, by a long shot - What is Rule 90?
The answer: Simple, “Have Fun”.

Second most frequently asked question - What is Rule 89?
The answer: Rule 89 defines a Protest Committee. Our feeling, if you sail by Rule 90 “Have Fun” you shouldn’t have to worry about Rule 89.

Third most frequently asked question - Can I buy you a drink?
The answer: Yes, thank you (usually followed-up with, what’s your name?).Remember, Rule 90 "Have Fun"

Okay, so you get the idea and can figure out where it goes from here.
Send us your best question regarding Rule 90 “Have Fun” (we’ll be the judges) and we will send a Rule 90 “Have Fun” hat to the best question received each month, providing of course we can answer the question.

Finally, always asked, somewhere down the line we hear this one:
What is rule # 1? The answer has to do with SAFETY: 1.1 Helping those in danger, 1.2 Life Saving Equipment and Personal Buoyancy . This is usually followed up with , “I thought Rule 1 was Fair Sailing? That’s Rule 2 which is the foundation of our sport, it say’s: a boat and her owner shall compete in compliance with recognized principles of sportsmanship and fair play. If you remember Rule 90 “Have Fun” you will never have a problem with Rule 2.

Now to the History - A bunch of friends of like mind use to do a fair amount of racing with a local legend (he wants us to keep his name out of this, but a lot of you know who he is) anyway, each time before we went out to the race course, in his Soverel 33, he would always tell us to remember to“ have fun”, it was a rule.

In grateful appreciation, we came up with Rule 90 “Have Fun”
