Olympic Qualifier - Sailing World Cup Miami  
Bowers Sits as Second American
After three challenging days of varying conditions, the fleets are halfway to completion of the first of two Olympic qualifying conditions for most fleets. The women's 470 fleet will not count this event but instead begins its qualifying in Argentina in February. 

Erik Bowers of Minnetonka has taken the regatta by storm sitting as first American after a light shifty first day. Hmmmm? Sound like our sailing here? After 6 races, Bowers sits in 22nd behind Charlie Buckingham (first American) in 11th place with a 20-point lead. Also competing is college sophomore Malcolm Lamphere further down the list. Full scores herewith four more races before Saturday's finale.

In the Nacra class, Stephanie Hudson of Beulah sits in the 3rd American slot in 24th. Bora Gulari (E Blue Chip Champ) is in third overall and first American. 

Annie Haeger has skipped this event to train in Argentina, site of her first qualifier.

US Sailing Judges Course  
East and West Courses
Feb 13 - Pewaukee - and March 12 - Wayzata

Become a US Sailing Certified Judge!  OR  just help out!
Judges are responsible for conducting protest and redress hearings when competitors believe there has been a breach of the rules. Judges also conduct arbitration hearings, enforce Rule 42 (Propulsion) on the water at fleet racing events and consult with organizers and race officers ahead of events to review race documents and procedures.
Judges improve the quality, consistency, and fairness of racing through proper administration of the Racing Rules of Sailing.

What is the Club Judge Seminar?
The US Sailing Club Judge Seminar is a one-day educational course intended to provide sailors and racers an opportunity to obtain practical knowledge and skills required to serve on a Protest Committee at their local sailing club or local regatta venue.
The Club Judge Seminar is NOT intended to serve as a rules seminar or symposium.

Rather, a person would attend the seminar with a goal to:
(1)become a new judge for their local club and able to serve on a protest committee;
(2)for existing members of a protest (or race) committee, sharpen their judging and procedural skills; and
(3)lay the groundwork to (potentially) pursue their US Sailing judging certification.
