SAYRA Judges' Forum
The SAYRA Judges' Committee holds quarterly Judges' Forums via Zoom.
When: The next forum is scheduled for August 25 with one more scheduled this year for November 17.
Time: 6 PM to 7:30 PM
Who: All SAYRA judges, judges in training, and judge prospects.
Topics: Many topics are being planned. Warren Collier will begin each of this year's forum with a deep dive into several sections of the US Sailing Judges' Manual. Other topics may include: resources for judges, tips on chairing a hearing, Appendix P, Rule 42, and much more. The structure of the forums will not be rigid. For example, if a topic comes up during discussion that takes off, we will run with it.
Please mark your calendars. The Zoom link will be emailed to you the Monday or Tuesday before the forum.
