Rules & Tactics - Seminars & Webinars

The Rules Have Changed

Every four years, the Racing Rules of Sailing change. The new rules now apply. The 2013 US SAILING Racing Rules & Tactics Seminar covers the rules (new and old) and related tactics.

What You Will Learn

You can't play the game if you don't know the rules.
The Rules & Tactics Seminar teaches all the rules (not just the new ones) and their underlying principles. You’ll see how the rules work and understand how to resolve the conflicts and transitions between the rules as positions change. We’ll go all the way around the course, teaching the rules in the way you use them – not by the numbers, but through situations on each leg of the course. You will learn to recognize situations and understand which rules apply.

But that is not all. The rules shape and control tactics. The Rules Seminar teaches how to position your boat to make use of the rules. You learn positions that allow you to control the game, and how to avoid positions that leave you vulnerable to attack. You’ll also learn the critical difference between right-of-way and control.

Top Instructors

Of course, the seminar is only as good as the teachers. Our Rules instructors include Understanding the Racing Rules author Dave Perry, Learn the Racing Rules DVD creator David Dellenbaugh, International Champions like Todd Berman, Andrew Kerr, Dobbs Davis, Geoff Moore, and North U. Director Bill Gladstone.

Included with the Seminar

With the seminar you will receive the Rules & Tactics Seminar Workbook written specifically for this course by Dave Perry and Bill Gladstone. The Rules Seminar includes a variety of interactive exercises, quizzes, and rules scenarios as well as rules and tactics analysis of racing video.
