A rudder system includes a pivotable rudder part, a rudder housing, on which the pivotable rudder part is rotatably mounted, and a resilient locking device. The pivotable rudder part is movable relative to the rudder housing from a pivoted-in position into a pivoted-out position. The resilient locking device is held in a pretensioned position by the pivotable rudder part when the pivotable rudder part is in the pivoted-in position such that, if the pivotable rudder part is in the pivoted-out position, the resilient locking device can be moved by tension relief from the pretensioned position into an at least partially tension-relieved position. In addition, the resilient locking device in the at least partially tension-relieved position blocks a movement of the pivotable rudder part relative to the rudder housing.
