This is an online event.

Dear Alan,

We hope you and your family are safe and healthy and getting a chance to enjoy some great summer sailing.

The YRA has been hard at work getting our USCG racing permits reactivated so club's have the option of resuming some racing if they have a way to run a race under their current county health orders, and we're pleased to say our work has been successful and many beer can series are starting to resume around the Bay.

Even before COVID made a full crew on board problematic, short-handed sailing in San Francisco was becoming more and more popular and now, it's one of the safest ways to get back out on the race course.

With that in mind, please join us for an in-depth look at short-handed sailing with 3 bay area sailors who have been doing it long before this pandemic disrupted our normal racing.

Lori Tewksbury, Jim Quanci and Bob Johnston will take us through the reasons Short-Handed Sailing was growing in popularity even before COVID hit, and talk about how to get started transitioning to racing with only 1 or 2 people. They'll talk about safety considerations, what types of races are ideal for short-handed crews, and tactics they've learned over their combined years of short-handed sailing experience.

It's sure to be an interesting and timely discussion and there will be a real time opportunity for questions and answers. As a bonus, your registration helps support the YRA during this difficult racing season and will help us keep the lights on until we can get back to a full racing season.
