The YRA Presents: A Race Committee Workshop 

The YRA is pleased to present a 2-part, hands-on workshop covering all the different aspects of race committee work. This workshop is an excellent opportunity for anyone looking to get more involved in race management and working on race committees.  Part 1 offers both classroom instruction as well as on-the-water instruction (weather permitting) while Part 2 will give participants a chance to put their new skills to work during an actual race.

Topics for February's session will include:

  • an overview of race committee positons
  • creating SIs and NORs
  • Staffing a race committee
  • Radio Etiquette
  • Setting a start line
  • Running Starting Sequences

February's Workshop will start at 10 am with approximately 2.5 hours of classroom instruction. We'll then break for lunch then pick up again in the afternoon with on-the water instruction. Lunch will be available for purchase at Encinal Yacht Club.

After completing February's workshop, join us starting at 8:00 am on Saturday April 27th to put your Race Committee skills to the test during the the OYRA Lightship race. You'll be part of the team running the race from the StFYC Race Deck and will have the opportunity to participate in all aspects of running a succesful race!

Jeff Zarwell, a US Sailing National Race Officer, and the Area G ARO will be leading the class. The fee for the workshop is only $20.
