Next Week: How to
It's time to go back to school. Next Saturday is MYC's annual Safety Seminar. It is a day long seminar focussing on how to stay warm and safe and dry. (Well, except for the Sunfish, Laser and Aero sailors, who are expected to be wet.)
You will learn what needs to be on your boat, and more importantly, on you (Like a lifejacket). This seminar is mandatory for all new members, and recommended for everyone.
The class starts at 10:00am and runs until approximately 12:00pm, rain or shine.
Immediately after the safety seminar (12:00 noon), there will be a second seminar teaching the rudiments of Race Duty. You will find out that running a race is more than just pushing the button on the Ollie. You will learn how to set a race course, how long to make the starting line, how long to make the legs, course choice, mark boat positioning, and more. We heartily recommend this course for new members, and anyone else who wants to improve their race duty game.
