Racing Rule 48.2 states "A boat shall comply with rule 10, Traffic Separation Schemes, of the IRCPAS" (International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea).
The IRPCAS can be downloaded at: International Regulations for Preventing Collisions at Sea, 1972 with Canadian Modifications.
The link is to the Canadian version since that's where the race course encounters Traffic Separation Lanes.  Rule 10 is on pages 16 to 18.
