I encourage all of you to have people from your club who are interested in race committee to consider attending the Race Management Class at Coral Reef on January 21, 2017. The cost is $50.00, includes lunch and class materials. To register go to US Sailing web site, then go to race officials and classes for Race Management. If you have trouble contact Win Cooper or Jane Anne Pincus and we will help you. All registrants must be a member of US Sailing. Every Club should have several members who have attended this class. It is helpful to racers to attend the class and volunteer for Race Committee. It gives them a good view of the whole race platform.
