The ISAF Race Management Seminar Instructors will meet this weekend to finalize the updated Seminar material used in all ISAF Race Management Seminars. Henri van der AAT (BEL), Chairman of the ISAF Race Management Sub-Committee will open the seminar and introduce a Race Management Philosophy that will help bring consistency to race management around the world.
This will be followed by an update on OCS. The next sessions will be dedicated to the review of the instructors seminar presentation pack. Race Management seminar material has always been linked to the content of the Race Management Manual and the next sessions will be dedicated to the the long awaited, updated and reformatted Race Management Manual.

The new manual will subsequently be made available to all IROs and will be posted on the website. Time has been allowed at the end of the first day for general discussion.

The second day will start by completing the review of the manual. The instructors will then proceed to review the written test. The written test has been updated and is an important element of all seminars and a requirement for criteria of status. The suitability of the test will be discussed and also the need for additional questions to test specific points of knowledge. The final part of the session will be to discuss the format and programme of the IRO Conference, 11-12 March 2006.

The Instructors Seminar, along with a Race Management Seminar in Malta, will be the last in a long line of ISAF Race Officials seminars this year. By demonstrating commitment to ongoing education, ISAF is investing in the future of the sport by maintaining a focus on one of it's vital and often unsung elements.

By the end of 2005, ISAF will have hosted 25 clinics or seminars in 23 different nations and with seven seminars and clinics already on the calendar for 2006, this programme continues apace next year.
