2020 Annual Members Meeting and Banquet - Postponed

In light of the Coronavirus situation, and out of concern for our members, the annual meeting and banquet is postponed.  We'll wait until the situation stabilizes before determining the best way to proceed.  Many members look forward to this event, with the excellent camaraderie and dining, and it is with great regret that we need to take this step.

Spring Racing Seminar

Anchorage Yacht Club skippers and crew:

Race Committee Made Simple!  How to Run a Smooth Starting Sequence and Finish!

Free Seminar March 14th 3pm - 4pm, in the Larsen Marine Showroom.

This Spring Racing Seminar will focus on how to make Race Committee a smooth and organized activity.  Because all of our teams must take on the Race Committee duties during the season, we will highlight how to make this a simple and fun activity.
  • How to prepare your boat and crew for Race Committee before you leave the dock.  Three simple steps.
  • Tips for setting a square line.
  • Flag signals, halyards and horns.
  • Advice on courtesy broadcasts over the VHF radio.
  • Crew assignments.
  • Recording finish times.
  • When to postpone and when to abandon.
This will be a facilitated discussion and we will be asking some of our more experienced skippers and crew to provide their insights.
 
Please RSVP to Jack Amedio at jack.amedio@graphicpartners.com so we can get a good headcount prior to the event.
