The Racing Rules of Sailing (RRS) have been updated for the years 2013 to 2016 and AYC is pleased to sponsor a Seminar on the updated rules from Dick Rose. Dick was the chair for the International Sailing Federation's (ISAF) committee that completed this most recent update. Rose also just received US Sailing's most prestigeous service award, the Natanael G. Herreshoff trophy. The Seminar will be held on Sunday, March 10, 2013 from 13:00-16:30 hrs at AYC. (We believe the club will still be accessible at that time. If not, we wil arrange a back-up venue.) The cost will be $15.00 for those over the age of 18 and free for 18 years and younger. As AYC is the sponsor, with this announcement, you will have a few days to get registered before we advertise to the greater public. You will not find a more authoritative seminar on the RRS than this so go to the AYC web site Events Registration tab, click on it and then open the tab, 2013-2016 Dick Rose Racing Rules, to get registered. You can pay on line with a credit card at our site. We urge you to register early so that you will get a seat as we expect seating to be limited. Then you can hit the race courses with renewed confidence for the upcoming racing season.
