Alongside the growth of shorthanded sailing, and with the introduction of the Mixed Two Person Offshore Keelboat event at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games, Annapolis Yacht Club (Annapolis, MD) will be hosting a seminar to discuss the format for the Olympics as well as introduce the new Mixed Double Handed Distance Race which AYC will host on September 28, 2019.

Learn about the new Olympic event and how it came to be from Gary Jobson who has served on the boards of World Sailing, US Sailing, the Olympic Sailing Committee, and the National Sailing Hall of Fame. He is also serving as a member of AYC’s committee for the new Chesapeake Bay-based event.

Are you interested in hearing what it’s like to compete in short-handed races? Local expert Tom Weaver will talk about his experience as a two-time Worrell 1000 (beach cat) competitor in the double handed 1000-mile Miami to Virginia Beach race.

Weaver, a Naval Architect and USCG Captain with 30 years in the marine industry including stints as a yacht designer, boatbuilder, and pro sailor, will also talk about his experiences in the America’s Cup, racing around the world and breaking speed records on the 125-foot catamaran, Playstation.

The seminar will take place on June 25, 2019, at AYC’s new Sailing Center located at 510 Severn Avenue, and will kick off at 1830. The seminar is gratis and open to anyone interested in learning more about the new event at both the Olympic and local level. To reserve your seat(s), call the Front Desk at 410-263-9279.
