South Shore Yacht Club Racing Rules - Part 2
FYI: (South Shore Yacht Club Posting) "Racing Rules Workshop – April 19th To refine your rules knowledge, sail smarter, and hopefully stay out of the protest room this season, be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday April 19 to attend the Racing Rules of Sailing – Part 2 workshop. Sponsored by Milwaukee’s T10 Fleet, this advanced racing rules workshop will focus on the rules as they apply around the racecourse, from pre-start to finish. Presented by US SAILING Senior Judge and Umpire, Cliff Black, the Racing Rules of Sailing Workshop – Part 2 – When Boats Meet, is designed to clarify your understanding of the rules as they apply to situations between converging boats. It’s a perfect way to improve your sailing skills without hitting the water. The workshop will be given at South Shore Yacht Club from 9:00 to 3:00. Open to all interested skippers and crew, space is limited and pre-registration is suggested. The $25.00 fee includes a casual lunch and all proceeds will benefit the South Shore Yacht Club Junior Sailing Program. Cliff Black serves as the US SAILING Area K Regional Administrative Judge. Cliff currently serves on the US SAILING Judges Committee, Match Racing Committee, U.S. Match Racing Championship Committee, and U.S. Women’s Match Racing Championship Committee. He is also a member of the Lake Michigan Sail Racing Federation Appeals Committee and a supporter of the Women’s International Match Racing Association. To register contact SSYC at 414 481-2331 and be sure to bring your rulebook with you for this fun and educational workshop."
