Introduction to Yacht Racing is Back!

Introduction to Yacht Racing 2013Introduction to Yacht Racing 2013 (IYR ’13) is an event to bring new crew (and new skippers) into sailboat racing.  The program will be held on March 23 at Del Rey Yacht Club (DRYC) from 9 AM to 5 PM. Introduction to Yacht Racing is sponsored by South Bay Yacht Racing Club in partnership with DRYC.

IYR ’13 provides new sailors with the basics of sailboat racing.  It is an opportunity for people interested in racing to experience the sport and meet other sailors.  The event also assists experienced crew to find openings on racing boats around the marina.

The morning session will cover the basics of how sailboats operate and their equipment.  New crew will be assigned to boats for on-water practice, and mentors will be available to assist training. The day will end with a practice race inside the marina.

In a wrap up session new crew will be given the chance to debrief with IYR staff and to talk about racing on a regular basis. Event organizers will help connect them with skippers looking for crew.

Registrants will receive by email attendance confirmation and instructional information to go over prior to the event.  Last year’s event was completely filled; those interested in participating should register as soon as possible.
