Race Committee Winter Training

Our “training season” gets underway on Saturday, 10 January. Scheduled for 1:00-3:00 pm, Rob Rowlands will lead an Introduction to Protest Committee seminar covering the protest process. For those interested in serving on protest committees, you will learn the basics of paperwork, determining validity, finding facts, developing conclusions, and making decisions in a timely manner within the RRS. This is a great opportunity for rookies and more experienced jurors alike.

The second "Introduction to Protest Committee" seminar, on Saturday, February 21, 1:00 -3:00 p.m., will be geared to be something more from a competitor's perspective:  how and when to protest, what to expect from the process, and how to help make it all fair.  Due to space limitations, we are asking people to sign-up in advance. Select the "Intro to Protest Committee (2)" button.  

It will be immediately followed by a Racing Rules seminar, 3:00-5:00 p.m. As Rob explained, this will not be your common rules seminar. It will be a participatory session reviewing the basic RRS regarding when boats meet, combined with a more in-depth look at rules specific to mark roundings, starting, and finishing. Learn which rules apply when and how they affect your rights and responsibilities at crucial times on the racecourse.
