RULES, TACTICS & PROTEST SEMINAR


BY DAVID PELLING (IJ/IU)


SATURDAY MARCH 28 AND SUNDAY MARCH 29, 2015

HOSTED BY CALGARY YACHT CLUB

635 East Chestermere Drive, Chestermere

RULES SEMINAR:

This is an interactive seminar designed for a small number of participants, in which real scenarios are presented in TSS* diagram format. Participants are encouraged to identify the applicable rule(s) and the responsibilities of the boats at each position throughout the situation. Various “what ifs” will be presented to enable participants to understand the details of the rules and possible tactical options. The follow up slide refers to the rules, which are involved, and those, which could be involved.

By this method, the 2013-2016 rules of the RRS Part 2 and selected rules from parts 3&4 become more familiar and easier to understand. Model positioning on a white board supplements the initial scenario, enables variations and tactics to be discussed.


PROTEST SEMINAR:

The aim on the second day of the seminar is to familiarize both competitors and potential judges with all aspects of a protest, from the incident through to the protest committee’s decision. Competitors will therefore be able to present their case more confidently and effectively, and the feeling of intimidation should be eliminated. Potential judges will learn how to not make basic mistakes and how to arrive at decisions more acceptable to competitors. Classroom time will be followed by having the participants split in groups of five, playing the parts of protester, protestee, protest committee chairman, member and fact writer in a series of mock hearings.

COST-$50.00 (INCLUDES 2013-2016 RACING RULES OF SAILING)

The Last Voyage of Donald Crowhurst

Enbridge New Canadian Play


by David van Belle and Eric Rose
Directed by Eric Rose


February 24 – March 14, 2015

Based on the true story of an unimaginable journey!

A visually stunning multimedia journey into deep waters. In 1969, British amateur sailor Donald Crowhurst seemed poised to win a solo, round-the-world sailing race. Suddenly, he went radio silent. Weeks later Crowhurst’s boat was found, hundreds of miles off course and with no sign of its captain. Only his logbooks remained to tell the tale of one man’s desire to win at any cost.

From the award-winning company that created The Highest Step in the World (Enbridge playRites Festival, 2010), comes this dazzling and imaginative new play about the art of deception. How far would you go to win?
