Adopt-A-Racer/Cruiser Seminar

Rusty on the Rules of Racing? Forgot who has Right-Away at a mark? Don't remember what flags are used at the start of the race? Want to learn some new tactics?
In lieu of our regular Women on the Water Workshop and Sail, we will be attending the Adopt-A-Racer/Cruiser Seminar on Saturday, March 29th. This is a FREE seminar being sponsored by the NFCC. All sailors are invited to attend. This is a great refresher session for seasoned racers or for those new to racing, an opportunity to learn how to race in a non-threatening scenario. This seminar will be held at Ortega Landing, formerly known as Ortega River Boatyard (ORBY).
There were be a short shore-side seminar (about 45 min.) about racing rules and starting tactics, and then an opportunity to go out on the water with an experienced racer and do a few practice starts.
Registration at 9:30am. Seminar starts at 10:00am with a few practice starts on the water. If interested, stay and join the Spring Series #4-Blue Max Race to Green Cove Springs.
This is a great opportunity to get your crew out as the Women's Sailing Series will begin 6 weeks from this event.
