AIRC Adds Three Great Events to Calendar

Linda Ambrose, Regatta Manager

The Adult Interclub Race Committee is committed to continuing education and outreach to members who are interested in learning more about team, match, and fleet racing. The Committee has put together a great line-up of informative events this spring, to not only introduce members to what the AIRC is all about, but also to update racers on team, match, and fleet racing rules and how they apply to the different disciplines of yacht racing. All events will be held in the Clubhouse in the Skipjack. A cash bar will be available.

First up is our annual Meet & Greet AND Intro to Team and Match Racing! Wednesday, March 6, 6:30 pm.
Have you been wondering how to amp up your racing? Come join us! This evening will be part social, and part educational, and a great way to meet fellow members who love intense racing. Member Cole Allsopp will give an overview of basic team and match racing strategies. For more information, click here: Meet & Greet Registration.

Next is an Advanced Team Racing/Match Racing Rules Clinic, Wednesday, March 13, 6:30 pm.
This event is open to all area sailors in addition to AYC members, as some of our top competition is within our neighbor clubs who join us for scrimmages and team race practice.
Know just enough about team racing to want to learn more? Come challenge your brain, with a frosty beverage in hand, to learn more complex team racing concepts and moves, with International Umpire and Annapolitan Jeff Borland. Jeff’s great at dissecting the rules so that you can understand what moves are legal, and how to get your team into a winning combination. Registration is available online for AYC members by clicking here: Team and Match Racing Rules Clinic. Or, if you have friends who would benefit from the clinic, have them RSVP by calling the Front Desk: 410-263-9279. Cash bar and Lite Fare menu available.

And to get everyone ready for Wednesday Night Racing, the last event on the current schedule is a Fleet Racing Rules Workshop, Wednesday, April 10, 6:30 pm.
Are you a weekend warrior or Wednesday night racer? Do you or your crew want some clarification on starting line rules or Rule 18 (at the marks)? We guarantee that you’ll use some of this knowledge on the race course this season! Organized by our Race and Protest Committees, and taught by International Judge Sandy Grosvenor, AYC’s Race Chair, and National Judge Ric Crabbe, AYC’s Protest Chair. Please RSVP by visiting this link: Fleet Racing Rules Seminar.

AYC members can join the Interclub Racing Program, which includes practices held on AYC’s J/22 fleet, coaching, scrimmages, continuing education, and the possibility of representing the Club at regattas both in the US and abroad. To learn more, visit the Adult Interclub Race Program web page.
