GRSA Racing 101 Seminar –May 18th
As mentioned on a recent Race Committee email, we’re holding an introductory racing seminar designed to be a low pressure environment for folks that are new to sailboat racing, been out of it for a while and want a refresher or just have initial interest in racing. The seminar will be held on May 18th at GRSA starting at 9:00 am and be broken into two parts: a morning “classroom” session in the pavilion where we’ll go over the items below and then an afternoon session where we’ll be on the water so people can practice what they learned.
Please note that this is not an “Introductory to sailing class”. The expectation is that you’re already proficient in basis sailing techniques and boat handling and want to learn more about racing.
9:00 AM Session classroom topics:
1:00 PM Session- on the water:
Cost: The GRSA race committee is supporting the cost of this seminar to encourage people to come out and experience racing so there is no cost to the participant. However, each seminar participant is expected to serve on a future regatta race committee as part of the full racing experience. This will help you better learn racing by observing the different tactics and techniques employed before the start and throughout the race.
