Online Learning now Available
I have often been asked whether my classroom seminars are videoed. The answer is yes, but not for the purpose of releasing unedited footage, Rather the intent has always been to edit the raw video and use it as content for self-paced online courses. Two are now available:
Understanding the Racing Rules of Sailing 6 hours 8 minutes
INTRODUCTION – HOW THE GAME IS PLAYED 31 minutes
RIGHT OF WAY 34 minutes
GENERAL LIMITATIONS ` 1 hour 40 minutes
AT OBSTRUCTIONS 55 minutes
AT MARKS 1 hour 50 minutes
THE START 29 minutes
SUMMARY 9 minutes

AERODYNAMICS 20 minutes
SAILING THEORY 1 hour

The upcoming Strategy & Tactics seminar on January 21 at BCYC will also be recorded, and an online course will be released in the future. If you are in the Fleet 1 area and plan to attend this event, please note that this is NOT a rules seminar. “Strategy” is about getting around a course as quickly as possible, and “Tactics” is about how to implement your strategy in the company of all the other boats, i.e. it is about boat-on-boat interactions – which are dependent on the rules. If you do not have a good working knowledge of the rules, completing the online course in advance would greatly enhance your enjoyment and ability to understand the information presented in “Strategy & Tactics”.
I you avail yourself of these learning resources, I would be very interested in your feedback. Please see free to contact me:
