Winter Classroom Series 2021/2022 topics and format announced

The Winter Classroom Series was introduced in the winter of 2020/2021.  Our beginner and intermediate Zoom classes were very popular and resulted in a large number of new sailors following through by signing up for lessons and/or the small boat introduction to sailing class.   It helped promote the Clinton Lake Sailing Association and contributed to getting new sailors into our programs in force and helped grow our membership.  Several of the recorded sessions from last winter can be viewed on the Winter Classroom Series page on the CLSA website.   

The initial focus of the Winter Classroom Series for 2021/2022 will be on race committee training and support boat operation.   We're working on publishing a series of training videos that people can watch at their convenience during the holiday season.  Once we get through the holidays, we'll schedule a happy hour or two so our race committee team can all get together for fun Q&A sessions.  Finally we'll plan some hands-on training for the race committee boat and support boat in April before the busy sailing season gets started.  Volunteering for the race committee or helping out on the safety boat during one of our classes is a fun way to support the club.  

In addition to race committee and support boat training, John Hearn has expressed an interest in teaching members gelcoat repair.   We are tentatively hoping to include that in our Winter Classroom Series, but may save that for the summer.  Please watch for email updates as we make program announcements and publish new training videos to the Winter Classroom Series page on the CLSA website.  Stay tuned...
