JSA Optimist Champs 2017

JSA Event Management Workshop for 2019
April 30,  7 – 9 PM at Larchmont Yacht Club

Regatta support teams at JSA clubs hosting regattas in 2019 met on April 30 to learn about new topics and share information at the workshop that was organized by Alex Helfand, from NY Athletic Club.  The Agenda and Clubspot presentation from the workshop may be viewed at this link.

  • Sheelagh Thomson, a past char of Larchmont Jr Race Week, provided a hands-on demonstration of JSA’s upgraded Regatta Registration and Management platform powered by Clubspot, which incorporates the Regatta Toolbox system rolled out last summer. The Clubspot platform is new and improved and the workshop provided an opportunity to learn about its features and how to effectively use them (many participants brought a laptop or tablet).
  • The workshop also featured a special presentation by Dave Waldo, from The WaterFront Center, who guided an open discussion to inform race officers about effective ways of managing large numbers of boats on the starting line, which often occurs at Optimist dinghy events.
  • Warren Costikyan, from Noroton YC, reviewed the updated templates for the Notice of Race, Sailing Instructions and race courses that are used by hosts of JSA qualifier and championship events.
