Sign up for the Speed & Smarts Seminar

This year’s seminar will focus on two topics.  Downwind strategy and tactics  in the morning and  mark rounding strategy and tactics in the afternoon. David will use a multi-media approach in a classroom setting.

Each is filled with videos, charts, animations, photos, discussions and practical tips to improve your racing performance and confidence.  Seminar participants get lots of practical race-winning tips to improve their strategic and tactical repertoire. Plus a printed course workbook for each seminar, a 16-page digital issue of Speed & Smarts about the seminar topic, and special discounts on all educational materials from Speed & Smarts.

The Speeds & Smarts Seminar is March 23, 2019

Special subscription offer!

If you would like to sign up all seminar attendees for a one-year digital subscription to Speed & Smarts, we are offering a significant discount as part of the seminar program. The annual subscription price is normally $38, but it would be just $8 per person if you have more than 50 sailors in the seminar, $10 for 30 to 50, or $12 for fewer than 30 sailors. (This is available only for the entire seminar group, but not for sailors who are already subscribers of Speed & Smarts.)
