Your Race Committee, under Pete Cookson’s guidance, has put together a great & SIMPLE seminar on race operations.  Serving on a Race Committee is fun and easy. There is nothing hard about it and, matter of fact, your own sailing will improve dramatically from the up-close observation of other skippers in action. You don’t have to be a racer, or even an experienced sailor, to enjoy a few hours on the lake on the pontoon boat.

                This is designed for all interested to attend.  We are targeting two date possibilities – Tuesday evening, August 18 or Tuesday evening August 25.  The whole thing should be finished in less than two hours and volunteering for Race Committee is a great way to support your club and expand your know-how.  You will get a new and different perspective of sailing, to say nothing of meeting new friends.

                Here’s how simple it is. Areas to be discussed include:

  • ·         Getting the committee boat set up, in the water and it’s operation
  • ·         Registering the competitors
  • ·         Setting the course
  • ·         Order of starts and sequences – horn, flags, sign boards and such
  • ·         Starting the race
  • ·         Completing the race and recording results
  • ·         How to score

                Please consider this easy learning opportunity and helping out your fellow sailors….take your pick of the dates. We’ll do our best to make this fun and worthwhile from many perspectives.

                Please respond quickly if you are interested, Please RSVP to Pete peter.cookson@verizon.net or Tom Tomg14024@gmail.com with the date you prefer

                                Choice one - Tuesday, August 18, 6:30 PM

                                Choice two – Tuesday, August 25, 6:30 PM

Please note that GRSA will be practicing safe social distancing at this event due to COVID 19.
