Coming Up

The Corinthian Midwinters will conclude on the weekend of February 17-18. "If you missed the signup, you can join the second half for a mere $85. Heck that's what? Three slices of avocado toast?" A great post-race party, daily trophies and series trophies are on the agenda. Saturday's Racers' buffet will be avocado toast-free and will have a South of the Border theme: Grilled mahi, carnitas, tortillas and tostada shells, sides, salsas and dulce de leche bars.

On February 17 and 18 there will be two US Sailing seminars which are open to anyone interested in learning the ins and outs of sailboat race management or the handling of the protest process. Each seminar is a requirement to become a US Sailing Certified Club Race Officer (Saturday) and/or Club Judge (Sunday). A goal of certification is not required to attend. The seminars will be held on Treasure Island at the Treasure Island Sailing Center from 0900 to 1730. The $50 fee per course covers US Sailing processing, course materials and the TISC facility costs. There are no 'galley' facilities, so it is BYOB and sandwich. There is a market/deli nearby. Instructors are John H. Super and John Siegel. Sign up through US Sailing.

Registration is open for the next installment in the Singlehanded Sailing Society's 2018 season. The SSS Corinthian Race will be held on February 24, a month earlier than usual. Island YC in Alameda will host the skippers' meeting on Wednesday, February 21, which is also the deadline to register. The meeting will be followed by the next Singlehanded TransPac seminar, The Return Trip and Shipping Logistics.
