Brush up on your racing rules with some free webinars
The RYA will be hosting a series of free webinars for racing sailors and aspiring race officials to introduce and explain the racing rules of sailing.
Whether you are our clubs rules expert or just want 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, will help you understand the right of way rules, how to deal with marks, obstructions and more.
Each webinar will aim to be interactive, giving you the opportunity to get your questions answered, and will also be recorded for those who cant make the initial screening.
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.
If you tune in live there will be the opportunity to ask the presenter your questions.
