When a Proper Course... Ain't All That Proper
By John McCarthy

Saturday, February 18, 2023 0900-1200
Old Dominion University – Constant Hall

Sponsored by BROAD BAY SAILING ASSOCIATION and taught by John McCarthy – US Sailing Race Officer, Instructor, and Judge

Cost = $20

A racing rules seminar OPEN TO ALL taught in John’s Rules Made Easy style. Designed to simplify the complex approach often taken when discussing the rules.

What you want to know about proper course... and when what applies:

  • What is a real proper course and who must sail one?
  • When and how much can I luff? When not?
  • What about "conversations" between boats?
  • What about at marks, starts, and finishes?
  • When does proper course, not really mean proper course?
  • Mast Abeam (just kidding!)
  • And, more... 

Rules Made Easy Style

  • Deals with concepts, not memorizing rules
  • Scenario driven using magnetic boats on a whiteboard
  • Easy to understand and entertaining

Casual approach with coffee and pastries throughout the morning
