    I just grabbed the 2017 safety requirements. Do y'all anticipate any significant changes?

    It appears that the few remaining Safety at Sea seminars are full....still waiting to hear from the coordinator of the one in Marina Del Rey.

    Online courses are available.
    https://www.ussailing.org/education/...t-sea-courses/
    SSS races require the half day course at minimum, which is the Coastal Safety at Sea course.
    https://www.sfbaysss.org/main/racing...-requirements/

    I did the coastal course in person, the offshore course online, and a hands on class in person.
    An online course is easily done in a day or a couple of evenings.

    HI Tom and gang.. I'm hoping to do the race, but as a newbie have a few questions/concerns Regarding AIS receivers.. having no experience whatsoever in this area, do folks have recommendations? I see I could upgrade my VHF (I have an Icom currently) to a unit that includes AIS receiver capability.. any suggestions, pros/cons, etc? Is it possible to rent a portable unit? Other options other than a big investment before I find out via the LongPac if I wish to pursue ocean racing in the future.. this would be my 'test drive'!

    Also, it was discussed having a seminar or two sometime on the earlier side to help out.. any dates or word on this at this time? I'll be out of town June 20-27th, and if one is happening the sooner the better just to help get things prepared. Any info helpful.. thanks mucho!
