A Host Club, when it is accepted by the ISA Committee to host a major Championship, agrees to abide by the Class and Championship Rules of the ISA and agrees to make no modifications of those rules without the specific authority of the ISA Committee as represented by the President, the ISA Championship Committee and/or the Liaison Officer.

Prior to the Championship a Notice of Race, designed in accordance with the ISA's Standard Notice of Race, is developed by the Host Club, evaluated repeatedly by the ISA Championship Committee, and finally approval and published approximately four months before the event. No changes may subsequently be made in the provisions of the Notice of Race (unless a timely Supplemental Notice approved by the ISA is issued). Thereafter, Sailing Instructions, designed in accordance with the ISA's Standard Sailing Instructions, are developed by the Host Club, evaluated repeatedly by the Championship Committee, and finally approved and published in time for the event. No changes may subsequently be made in the provisions of the Sailing Instructions - except with the approval of the Liaison Officer.

The Liaison Officer is responsible for assuring that the Championship is conducted in accordance with the ISA Rules, the approved Notice of Race, and the approved Sailing Instructions. The International Jury and the Organizing Authority should be discouraged from making any changes in these rules and regulations, and none with which the Liaison Officer is not in complete agreement should be permitted. Without his signature no changes may be effected. (See Fleet Racing Championship Rule 8.1.)
