RYA launches racing rules webinars
The RYA is hosting a series of free webinars for racing sailors and aspiring race officials to introduce and explain the racing rules of sailing.
Whether you’re a rules expert, a squad sailor or just someone who wants to know a bit more, the six-week series will guide you through the racing rules to give you the best advantage on the race course.
The sessions will be delivered by some of the top names in the world of racing rules including British Sailing Team coach and strategist Mark Rushall, World Sailing Governance and Rules Consultant Jon Napier and Tokyo 2020 video umpire Chris Lindsay.
The webinars, which will be screened at 8pm every Wednesday starting from April 29, are designed to help you understand the right of way rules, how to deal with marks, obstructions and more.
Each webinar will be interactive, giving you the opportunity to have your questions answered but for those who can’t make the initial screening, it will be recorded.
No camera or microphone is required to join – you can simply relax, view the slides and listen to the presenter as they explain each rule, and how they apply to real life scenarios.
