As you may have heard, during the month of April we conducted a racing study group with the intention of improving racing skills, rules and tactics for club members. The group was oversold with 22 members and 4 volunteer instructors. We were fortunate to recruit some of our best racing resources to lead both classroom and on-the-water practice sessions, including Cory Schillaci, Paul Kamen, Seamus Vanecko, and Mark Playsted. In this post I want to share a couple of pictures, Cory's rules quiz handout for you to test your own knowledge of the rules, and the entire tactics classroom session video by Paul Kamen. I did not take pictures from the on-the-water sessions because we were all on the water, but suffice to say it was exciting with up to 11 boats on the water plus this skiff - and with at least one NASCAR style pile up. Fortunately there was no damage or injuries.
Standing room only - we more than filled the Marina conference room
