Sail Canada Racing Rules of Sailing change

Every four years, the Racing Rules of Sailing change. The new rules now apply. The 2013 Racing Rules and Tactics Seminar covers the rules (new and old) and related tactics.

What You Will Learn - You can't play the game if you don't know the rules.

The Rules and Tactics Seminar is a full day course that teaches all the rules (not just the new ones) and their underlying principles. You'll see how the rules work and understand how to resolve the conflicts and transitions between the rules as positions change. We'll go all the way around the course, teaching the rules in the way you use them - not by the numbers, but through situations on each leg of the course. You will learn to recognize situations and understand which rules apply.

But that is not all. The rules shape and control tactics. The Rules Seminar teaches how to position your boat to make use of the rules. You learn positions that allow you to control the game, and how to avoid positions that leave you vulnerable to attack. You'll also learn the critical difference between right-of-way and control.

Included with the course is the new Racing Rules and Tactics Workbook prepared by Dave Perry and Bill Gladstone.

Seminar Schedule:

Saturdays, 9am - 4:30pm

Vancouver BC - Feb 16
Chestermere AB - Feb 23
Nanaimo BC - March 9
Ottawa ON - April 6
Toronto ON - April 13
Montreal QC - April 20
Saint John NB - April 27

Sunday, 9am-4:30pm - Halifax NS - April 28

In addition to the full day seminar schedule the course will be offered three times as an on-line Webinar. Each Webinar course will be taught in two three hour weekday evening sessions. Visit northu.com for dates and details.

Of course, the seminar is only as good as the teachers. This series will be led by racing champions and veteran instructors, including Geoff Moore, Andrew Kerr, and Dave Perry.
