During the weekend of 1st, 2nd and 3rd of March Chris Simon will be in the Island to run various Race Management courses which are open to all the islands Yacht clubs and SCSC. The provisional program is:-
Friday evening a talk of about 1 1/2 hours on the new RRS,
this should be of interest to all racing sailors.
Saturday morning 3-4 hour course on Rules Advisor training.
This is connected with running arbitration hearings (a quicker simpler
approach to protest hearings).
Sunday 09:00 to 17:00 Club Race Officer course. This will be
both a refresher to those who have already done the Club Race Officer
course and an introduction for those who have not.
All these courses will be FoC.
