US Sailing Advanced Race Management Seminar

“Area G leaders, interested in learning more about race management? Renewing your race officer certification? Taking the test toward certification for Club, Regional…?” inquires Peggy Lidster, US Sailing Area G representative. (US Sailing is divided geographically into 11 Areas; Northern California and most of Nevada comprise Area G.)

St. Francis Yacht Club on the San Francisco Marina will host an in-person, two-day US Sailing Advanced Race Management seminar on February 5-6 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Registration will close on January 26. Instructors will be John Siegel and Thomas Duggan.

This seminar fulfills the requirement for recertification and offers the opportunity to take the Advanced Race Officer Test after the final session. Students will have three weeks to complete it.

US Sailing has a list of materials to gather before the first session. They’ll also ask registrants to complete a few short quizzes and activities before the first session that review the study questions and other topics. Registrants will find these assignments in Canvas, US Sailing’s online learning platform. The organizer and/or lead instructor will email students with additional course information and links approximately 10 days before the seminar begins. Be sure to download the new Racing Rules app at:
