Join the Race Committee on Saturday, October 26 for our
annual mark boat training class. Whether you’re new to mark set or just want or
need to brush up on your skills, this is the place to do it. We’ll start with a short lecture, then it’s down to the dock
to learn how to rig the gear.
After that, we’ll be on the water for the
hands-on training of:
Bearing and distance (easy with a GPS, but we show you how
to make it easy)
- Compass and rangefinder
- The bowline—the only knot you need to know
- Setting an anchor
- Streaming a mark
- Moving a mark
- Retrieving a mark
- Most importantly, how to drink a beer after learning mark set techniques!
We’ll start at 0900 and will finish sometime between 1400
