An Interactive, Fun & Educational Webinar 

with Dave Perry


The Changes in the 2021-2024 Racing Rules of Sailing  hosted by the Portland Yacht Club

Wednesday, May 5, 2021

7:00pm – 9:00pm EDT

Dave Perry is well known for his enthusiastic and engaging teaching style for sailors of all ages and levels, as well as highly respected for his deep knowledge of the sport of Sailing. He is one of the sport’s leading coaches and rules experts, serving on the US Sailing Appeals Committee and being the Rules Advisor and Coach for several recent America’s Cup teams and the US Sailing Team at the 2008, 2012 and 2021 Olympic Games.

Dave has learned how to bring his same engaging and effective teaching style to the Zoom platform, and is excited to work with the sailors and race officials in the Portland area know the rules better so they are more confident in close-quarter action at the starts and around the marks, and so they can play the game at a higher level. Dave encourages sailors who normally crew to join us because knowing the rules better will dramatically increase their racing enjoyment.

Ask Dave! is a session where Dave will explain the significant changes in the new racing rules that went into effect on January 1, 2021, and then will answer the participant’s rules questions for the remainder of the time. 

Fee: $20
