Kansas Sailing Association is dedicated to one design racing. One design racing means everyone competes in the same type of boat. At present, most of the active racing occurs with the Hobie catamarans.
Each fleet gets their own start and compete in a true "head to head" competition. The victor can claim best sailor (for that race at least!) since everyone has the same type of boat, number of sails, etc.
This section will explain what needs to happen in order to run good races. Below you will find a schedule outlining who is responsible for running races during each scheduled race day. If you are the Primary Racing Official (PRO) it is your responsibility to: 1) Coordinate people to help you.
2) Understand how to launch and run the race committee boats (starting pontoon link below- this can be tricky).
3) Understand how to start and run three races (starting guide link below).
4) Properly record the results and deliver those results to the responsible party (current scoring sheet link below).
In addition, the PRO should actively promote racing for the day. This should include sending batch emails, calling key people and in general building enthusiasm for racing on your scheduled day.
