The Samoa Sailing Association will run an ISAF International Race Management Clinic early next month to ensure the racing during the South Pacific Games is conducted to the highest standard. ISAF International Race Officer David BROOKES (AUS) will travel to the Apia the Apia Yacht Club Yacht Club to conduct the clinic.
International Instructor and member of the ISAF Classes Committee and ISAF Class Rule Sub-Committee BROOKES, says the ISAF aims to establish consistency, fairness, and quality for racing around the world.

'At the end of the clinic, the participants will understand how to run races to ensure the competitors have consistent decisions by the race committee, fair racing on an even race course, and quality racing,' BROOKES said.

Samoa sailing Association President, Nynette SASS, said approximately 15-20 participants are expected to complete the course.

Excellent Response

'I am very pleased with the excellent response from several of our fraternity who have stepped forward and offered to volunteer their time for Sailing during the Games,' SASS said.

'The volunteers who complete this Clinic will in turn be able to pass on that knowledge to other volunteers who may be acquired depending on the demand,' she said. 'The knowledge will also be useful in organizing future sailing events not only for Samoa but within the region'.

BROOKES has been running World Championships as a member of the Race Committee, Organizer and Principle Race Officer for ten years throughout numerous countries.

The Race Management Clinic will be run over the 3-4 March.
