South Bay Yacht Racing Club and Del Rey Yacht Club have teamed up again for Introduction to Sailboat Racing 2014!
This outreach program is designed to bring new people into racing as well as supply new crew to racing boats.
It’s happening on March 8 at DRYC and runs from 9 AM to 4 PM.
Information and crew registration is available at http://www.sbyrc.org/intro-to-sailboat-racing/.
If you would like to be a “host boat” to help demonstrate racing basics to the newbies we would love you have you. Contact Greg Rutter at [email protected] or 206.551.9090. It’s a great way to help the racing community and to meet new racers.
Crew for you:
One of Intro to Sailboat Racing’s objectives it to place its “graduates” aboard for the season. If you need crew or can make a spot for a new person for the season (or know someone who can), definitely call Greg Rutter at 206.551.9090, or email him at [email protected].
