Thanks to Safety Officer Ted Laurentius for hosting the Racing 101 seminar last night. Those in attendance got to learn the ins and outs of racing and spark some interest for the summer ahead. For those who missed out, you can get a copy of Ted’s notes here – Racing Seminar Notes.
Upwind. Downwind. Gybe. Starboard! Pin Finish.
If these terms only vaguely make sense to you and you’d like to learn more about the basics of sail racing, then join us May 25th at 7:00pm for a Racing 101 seminar hosted by RNYC Safety Officer Ted Laurentius.
Ted Laurentius has seen all aspects of Sail Racing from every possible crewing position including skippering and Race Committee for over 5 decades. He will have plenty of examples and stories from which to draw upon. Ted has agreed to share his “tips, tricks and lies” for racing fun in this FREE seminar!
The presentation is directed toward novice sailors or those who have wanted to try racing but might be unfamiliar with what it’s all about, intimidated by the technicalities, rigors or “danger” of the sport. It will take the mystery out of such things as notice of race, start sequences, starting strategy, basic rules and winning tips. It will also be beneficial to regular racing crew who would like to know more about what goes on during the race and some of the challenges facing the skipper.
Where: RNYC Club House
When: May 25th, 7:00pm
Who: Anyone with an interest in racing
The bar will be open and this will be a laid back evening of fun to get the competitive juices flowing.
