NUTS & BOLTS for RACE COMMITTEES – Saturday, March 10, 2018.
This is a Murphy Seminar presented by Southern Bay Racing News You Can Use, and hosted by Hampton Yacht Club, Hampton, Virginia. The seminar is entitled “Bearings and Angles and Numbers, Oh, My!” The morning will be spent discussing starting lines, gates, offset legs, finish lines and other places where numbers are important, but need not be daunting. Taught in John’s informative, entertaining style, the seminar will remove the mystery from what these numbers mean and how to determine them quickly and easily. No math skills required . . . just common sense.
Instructor is John McCarthy, US Sailing certified Race Officer and Judge. Seminar hours are 9:00am to Noon. The $25 seminar fee includes materials and coffee, tea, pastries and fruit at check-in and coffee, soft drinks, water and sweets at the breaks.
