Spring Sailing Seminar

Mudhead Spring Seminar

When: April 21, 2021
Time: 7-9pm
Where: Zoom

An Interactive, Fun & Educational Webinar
with Dave Perry  

 The Rules From Start to Finish
Presented by the Mudheads & the ECSA

Dave Perry is well known for his enthusiastic and engaging teaching style for sailors of all ages and levels, as well as highly respected for his deep knowledge of the sport of Sailing. He is one of the sport’s leading coaches and rules experts, serving on the US Sailing Appeals Committee and being the Rules Advisor for several recent America’s Cup teams and the US Sailing Team at the 2008, 2012 and 2021 Olympic Games.

The Rules From Start to Finish is a Question & Answer session where Dave answers all the rules questions asked by the participants. Participants can send in their questions ahead of time (see information below), and/or bring them to the session. Dave will also weave in explanations of some of the significant changes to the new 2021-2024 Racing Rules of Sailing, as well as the tactical applications of the rules, making this a great session for newcomers to the sport or sailors who have not studied the rules in awhile, as well as for sailors more experienced with the rules. Being more confident and clear on the rules, whether skipper or crew, reduces a lot of anxiety around other boats, and makes one a better player of the game.

Fee: Free.  Please consider a donation to the Dillon Fund.
