There is a free sailing course coming out soon that is not class specific and is therefore beneficial to dinghy and keelboat sailors, monohull and multihull sailors. It assists with the development of sailboat racing, in addition to the online training videos. The training will be released on Monday, 10th August; register beforehand to get the free lessons at:

Many of our members have begun to use the RaceQs smartphone application to track their race. It's free, simple to use, and allows for all particpants to view a fully integrated race picture after the race. It is a great learning tool and we have received absolutely great feedback on its capabilities. On the Race Events tab to the right of each completed race, you can click on a RaceQs replay of each race in addition to being able to click on the results. RaceQs can be downloaded for free for both Apple and Android smartphones. To see a video on how RaceQs works, see: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vfgAojXuEiA
If you can't see the results on the Race Events tab, please create a username on the LogIn page and you will be able to see Race Events and results by next day.
