US Sailing to offer One-Design Sailing Symposium

PORTSMOUTH, R.I. — US Sailing will hold its One-Design Sailing Symposium on Nov. 15 and 16 at the Atlanta Yacht Club in Acworth, Ga., it reported in a recent statement. The symposium will cover topics including the latest developments in one-design sailing, how to run a successful clinic or regatta, how to promote a class or event, tips on securing sponsorships and a review of insurance basics.

The goal of the symposium, according to US Sailing, is to facilitate the exchange of information between one-design experts and sailors and create a dialogue for keeping one-design sailing healthy and growing in the United States. Events will include a Mount Gay Rum Speaker Series presentation and party; a US Sailing Racing Rules Seminar with racing rules expert Dave Perry; Go Fast Workshops with Skip Dieball of Quantum Sails and multiple one-design champion Greg Fisher of North Sails; and an Event Communication Seminar with Sailing Scuttlebutt editor Craig Leweck. US Sailing will also present its annual One-Design Awards.
