Rush Creek will be hosting a US Sailing Race Management Seminar on Saturday, February 22. This course is designed for people who have some race committee experience, but newcomers are also most welcome. The seminar will be held in the Doolin Education Center from 0800 to 1730.
The topics covered include Race Committee (RC) objectives, RC responsibilities, sailing instructions, RC jobs, RC equipment, setting the course, starting system, starting penalties, before the start, during the race, finishing, and scoring. The changes in The Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016 that affect race management will also be discussed.
Registration is $45 and includes course materials from US Sailing, continental breakfast, and lunch. The class is limited to 25, so please sign up early to reserve your place. This course will equip you with the knowledge to proficiently run races and is required to be certified as a Club Race Officer.
At the seminar you will need your own copy of The Racing Rules of Sailing 2013-2016 (“RRS”), which you received with your US Sailing membership. If you have not received your copy, please contact the US Sailing office at firstname.lastname@example.org.
