2017-2020 US SAILING Racing Rules and Tactics Seminar

The Racing Rules of Sailing change every four years.

The Eastern Yacht Club is hosting a seminar on the new racing rules, as well as the old, related tactics and their underlying principles. You will learn your rights and obligations in every situation and learn how to resolve conflicts.  Rules pertaining to situations around the race course will be explained.  You will learn to recognize situations and know which rules apply.  The seminar will also teach you how to position your boat to tactical advantage and avoid positions that leave you vulnerable.  You will learn the critical difference between right-of-way and control.
