Organizing a Seminar
Are you interested in hosting a Race Official Seminar at your club, sailing center or other venue? First of all, thank you — we rely on volunteers to help us train Race Officials, and your willingness to pitch in helps us advance the quality and availability of race management. Prior to completing an online form, please review How to Organize a Seminar.
We strongly urge you to utilize our cost calculator in order to determine as low a course fee as possible. Each participant, including certified Race Officials, register for seminars at their own expense. Seminars should not be viewed as a potential revenue source for the host. This calculator provides for both fixed and variable costs (US Sailing administrative fee, food, facility rental, instructor expenses, etc.). It’s best to discuss this with the instructor before taking the next step.
Some hosts prefer to absorb some of the seminar costs rather than pass them on to the participants – that’s fine, but please make sure you are aware of what you will need to cover. US Sailing cannot reimburse additional expenses that are not included in the registration fee.
If you have any questions or need assistance, please contact Pat Crawford or call (401) 366-3109.
