The RYA has launched a six-week series of racing rules webinars led by rules experts including Belfast Lough's own Chris Lindsay
The webinars will be free for racing sailors and aspiring race officials to introduce and explain the racing rules of sailing. Whether you are your club’s rules expert, a squad sailor or just want to know a bit more, the series will guide you through the racing rules to give you the best advantage on the race course.
The sessions will be delivered by some of the top names in the world of racing rules including British Sailing Team coach and strategist Mark Rushall, World Sailing Governance and Rules Consultant Jon Napier and Tokyo 2020 video umpire Chris Lindsay.
The webinars, which will be screened at 8 pm every Wednesday starting from April 29, will help you understand the right of way rules, how to deal with marks, obstructions and more. Each webinar will aim to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to get your questions answered, and will also be recorded for those who can’t make the initial screening.
This is an ideal way to prepare for the coming season, for whenever we’re back on the water again.
No camera or microphone is required to join - you can simply relax, view the slides and listen to the presenter as they explain each rule, and how they apply to real-life scenarios.
If you tune in live there will be the opportunity to ask the presenter your questions. To register click here
