2013 ISAF Int'l Measurers Seminar
Great Opportunity for Class Measurers
Attention all Class Measurers, there will be an ISAF Measurers Seminar and Refresher Clinic held at the U.S. Sailing Center in Miami. The sessions will run from Friday, December 6th to Monday December 9th. This invitation and session is open to ALL CLASSES.
If you are a measurer involved with your class and want to upgrade your skills, learn about the latest techniques and procedures for regatta or boat measurement, want to understand the ISAF Equipment Rules of Sailing (ERS) or be a better Chief Measurer for your class then this is the seminar to attend.
The session will be broken into a one day ERS Clinic and 3 days for the Seminar where at the end you will have the chance to write the ISAF International Measurers exam which is a pre requisite for the International Measurer’s designation (IM). The Seminar and successful completion of the test are required for anyone to apply for an IM (see ISAF Regulation 31 at www.sailing.org ). With only about 3 seminars a year worldwide and seminars in North America rare this is a great opportunity for North American based measurers.
As you may know it is a requirement of being an ISAF International Class that each Class have a number of International Measurers and North America is under represented in the IM ranks. Here is a chance to help out your class by getting involved. This session is being hosted by US Sailing with the assistance of the U.S. Sailing Center and Coral Reef Yacht Club.
