Tues 25th Feb at AYC 7.30 pm, (BBQ, refreshments at 6.30 pm)
Everyone is invited to come and learn Race Rules and correct protest procedures. This is a must for all to attend and ensure you have the knowledge to sail fairly and to the best of your ability. A BBQ sausage sizzle and refreshments will be available from 6.30 pm and the seminar commences at 7.30 pm.
A thorough knowledge of Race Rules will improve your race strategies and rules-of –the- road on the racecourse, particularly in close fleet racing.
To hear all about it, we have Geoff Searle presenting a seminar on Race Rules on Tuesday 25th Feb 2014 at 1930 hours. Geoff is an International Judge and Chairman of Protest Committees. He is an expert on the Race Rules and his seminars are highly regarded.
He explains rules in plain language that is easy to understand.
The seminar is open to all and is essential for all skippers and crew with little sailing experience to sailors with years of experience.
Congratulations to all sailors who attended the annual Top of the Bay challenge at Elwood on the 8th Feb 14.
