I have been contemplating this question: Sailing rules within three boat length circle and the comments on it. I may be overlapping a bit with this older meta Which sports need to be discussed?, but I think there are some new points to bring up as well.
There are several things that are fully on-topic here in terms of equipment, techniques, places to go, etc., that also exist as regulated competitive sports. This includes sailing, archery and shooting sports, canoe and kayak, trail running, mountain biking, and more. The leagues, sponsors, and events may have specific rules related to competitions they sanction and support, and these rules may lead to ambiguity, confusion, special cases, and other things that would lead a participant to ask a question about them.
What do we want to do with those types of questions?
