JSA Event Management Workshop for 2017
April 18  7 – 9 PM at Larchmont Yacht Club

The open roundtable discussion will have a segment that focuses on sharing best practices among clubs to assure success in this year’s junior events, as well as a segment on effect of the new Racing Rule Changes on Management of JSA Events. Registration will open in early April.

We invite junior program and regatta volunteers from JSA clubs, both veterans and new, to join these discussions, share their experiences and provide a perspective on some of the issues and challenges that that we all face when running a junior event.

Remind those at your club who will benefit from participating in the workshop. Regatta chairs, race officers, regatta committee members/volunteers, junior program chairs, sailing and program directors are all welcome.
