Also called the "Make Up Seminar" this USSailing Sanctioned one-day Seminar is scheduled June 15, two days before the start of the 2016 Newport Bermuda Race so that people who have not completed the required training when they check in for the Race will have a last minute chance to do so.
The seminar will take place at the Community College of Rhode Island (CCRI) in Newport. Start time is 08:00 with registration and coffee plus breakfast nibbles at 07:30
Typically this seminar serves boat crews who have been out of the country (Caribbean, Europe, etc) or unable to attend another seminar in their local area. It also serves captains, navigators and watch captains of racing yachts who may not be in full compliance of the Race Safety Requirement (NBRSR 5.2) that states " At least 30%, but not fewer than two members of the crew, including the Captain and Navigator or a Watch Captain, shall have attended a one-day or two-day US Sailing Offshore Safety at Sea Seminar within the last five (5) years, or other courses approved by US Sailing."
Cruising sailors are also invited to this seminar. A special description of the CCA's Safety for Cruising Couples, including Suddenly Alone program will be included at the end of the day.
