About Event

This event is designed to introduce the novice skipper or crew to the fundamentals of proper sail trim. Topics for discussion include: How sails work, Boat and wind terminology, Sail terminology, Sailing in different wind conditions and points of sail. Attendees spend about 3 hours in a class at the GBCA clubhouse and then may go out to race in the Rum Race that afternoon. If you have a boat but have never raced, we have just the fleet for you. The Club Handicap Fleet is designed for the sailor who doesn't have racing sails, doesn't have his diver's number in speed dial, doesn't want to unload the blender, bimini and barbecue pit before every race, but who has his crew tighten up the jib sheet if gets within hailing distance of another boat. Come to the Seminar and race in the Rum Race that afternoon. The Seminar starts at 09:30 and will be over by 2pm, to allow time to get to boats. Lunch and soft drinks/water will served. All of this for only $10.00!!
