Been day sailing in the bay, or cruising around the coast but thinking of starting a racing program? We've got a seminar for you! Kame Richards and Seadon Wijsen, and a select few YRA Board Members, will talk about the ins and outs of starting a racing program and getting your boat and your crew ready for racing on San Francisco Bay.

This intro talk will cover many different aspects of getting ready to start to race, including topics such as:

  • Where to find races to enter
  • Finding crew
  • Practice
  • Sails needed for the bay
  • Sails needed for the ocean
  • Getting a PHRF Certificate & what you can and cannot do with a PHRF certificate
  • Safely outfitting your boat for racing

Kame Richards & Seadon Wijsen are local sailmakers with tons of experience sailing in San Francisco Bay and they will be leading the talk, aided by YRA Board Members with extensive sailing experience on SF Bay as well.  If you been thinking about trying out racing, but weren't sure how to get started, this talk will set you on your way. Have friends or dock mates you think should get out on the race course? Bring them along or share this email with them!
