Following on from the great success we are currently enjoying holding a series of regional seminars entitled "bringing more people to the sport", we have now added even more dates and venues. These now include Poole and Hamble. Please see below for more information and click on the PDF link for the full details of the dates/venues.
A series of winter seminars are being held around the UK, presented by James Dadd (RORC Rating Office Director) and a representative from the RYA Technical Department. Here is some feedback we have received so far...
"An excellent seminar that diffused any contentious issues that may otherwise have come up on handicaps by their approach. It set exactly the right tone for us, getting more people involved in racing and that it must be made fun! It most certainly made us all think about our approach to racing." - St Helier YC, Jersey.
"On behalf of us all thank you for taking timeout to include us in your nationwide series of seminars. It will only have done good and there were some faces from our club that I have not seen for months. We must now do something to get them racing again." - Blackpool & Fleetwood YC
Subjects for discussion include:
- getting more people out racing
- race planning
- IRC/local handicap/NHC
- Single Event Ratings
- misconceptions about IRC (dispelling those bar talk rumours!)
- any other points of interest relevant to cruiser racing
EVERYONE is invited whether you race under IRC or not, including those who currently race NHC or other local handicap, so please tell your friends!
Venues: Already visited are Jersey, Torbay, Cardiff, Kip (Scotland), Blackpool and Pwllheli; STILL TO COME: Brighton, Ramsgate, London, Harwich, Poole and Hamble.
