Yes BAND LEADER, we will expect you to help next year as well.
On October, 13th NOYC met with US Sailing to talk about opportunity to partner and grow the sport together.
One of the topics was training and developing Race Committee resources. We are working with Andrew Clouston to develop some online Race Committee training via WebEx or Zoom. The projectors in the East Rooms at NOYC and SYC are not bright enough and need to be upgraded toward 10,000 lumens. The training material is hard to see. So we are talking about allowing training over Webinar technology at home after hours. The certification test of course would happen on site at SYC or NOYC.
This is how small the world is. Andrew and I attended the America's Cup races in Auckland, NZ back in 2003. Stars and Stripes raced against GBR in the LV Cup before losing to Alinghi. We watched the LV races aboard Dickie Scruggs yacht the 37m yacht "Emerald K" on the race course. Gary Jobson and Kenny Read's family were also on the spectator boat.
More news to come soon. If interested in Race Committee training and certification, please send a quick e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
