“What You Need to Know About Weather, as a Race Officer!”
Alan Smith, an instructor for 25 years with Canadian Power & Sail Squadrons
We will look at the predictability of weather systems, how to know where your race course is relative to a weather system, and how to make informed decisions about your race based on weather expectations.We will identify resources to enhance your understanding of the weather during your race event. We will also touch on “tools of the trade” that will support on the spot race committee decisions.
David Pelling, International Judge / Umpire
Redress in sailing is a grossly misunderstood subject. In a protest hearing the ‘loser’ gets disqualified but the ‘winner’ gets nothing. There are circumstances, however, where a wronged competitor can be compensated for the failure of others to abide by the rules or to act reasonably. Further, acts of good seamanship can be rewarded.
"The Art of Target Time"
Peter van Muyden, International Race Officer
The history of target time, the importance of meeting target time, examples of target time models and how to create models.
"Coaches, Race Officers & Judges - Working together"
Ken Dool, Canadian Sailing Team Head Coach and Director of High Performance
Discussion will focus on the role of Coaches in the Race Management team including relationships with Event Organizers, Race Officers, Judges and Safety Teams, how to interact effectively with coaches when delivering an event and the growth of a new partnership.
