ISAF MEASURERS CLINIC IN BUILD-UP TO 470 AFRICAN CHAMPIONSHIPS25 Nov 2015
As part of the focus on sailing in Africa in the build-up to the first ever 470 African Championships, an ISAF Measurers’ Clinic will be held in Cape Town on 9-10 January 2016.
Led by Clinic Instructor and 470 Class Measurer Jurgen Cluytmans (BEL), the clinic will focus on sharing best practice, along with a mix of theory and practical sessions.
Participants from nations competing in the 470 African Championships are expected to compete. The clinic takes place over two days, with one and a half days spent on theory and a half-day practical experience.
The objective of the clinic is to train local measurers, so as to have local officials taking care of event management. Long term, the aim is to identify candidates who can become ISAF International Measurers for the classes that are sailed in the continent, such as Optimist, Laser, 420 and 470 as well as other classes.
