US Sailing Advanced Race Officer Seminar 

Instructors Peter "Luigi" Reggio and Tom Duggan will make this seminar as entertining as possible.  If you are a Race Officer and need to recertify or just want to polish your performance this is the seminar for you. If you want to learn more about running match races - one of the most entertaining types of racing - this seminar is for you.

Oakcliff Sailing is thrilled to have Luigi back as his stories for the last race management seminar two years ago kept the whole room enterttained for the entire seminar. Lead by Tom Duggan this will be a seminar that keeps moving and will address high level race officer issues.

If you have been volunteering for race committee work this is the opportunity to meet some of the most respected race officers in the area and learn from them. Come listen and learn about race management, especially match racing.
