happy with my shopping.
It's a 2005 edition (no update since then?) so watch out for rules that are slightly out of date (e.g. page 162 refers to rule 17.2 in an example where a windward boat must not sail below its proper course -- rule 17 no longer constrains a windward boat).
But that's a very minor complaint.
