2024 Winning Strategies & Tactics Around the Course seminar series announced  *Dates Updated

Last year Dave Perry led us through four terrific virtual sessions about rules around the race course. This April (and May 1st), Dave will be back to discuss Winning Strategies & Tactics Around the Course. If you have not attended a session with Dave, he’s a master at explaining the race course while making the session a lot of fun!


So, save Wednesdays – April  3,10, 24  and May 1, 7:30-9pm, and invite your crews and potential new racers – members and non-members are welcome to join in. There is no charge to attend – your dues are hard at work here!
More details including the Zoom link and a short readme that you should read prior to the sessions are here
