2015 Measurement Clinic

Sail Canada, with the support of ISAF, with ISAF, is considering hosting a measurement clinic in association with Laser World Championships in June 2015, with the object of developing Canadians with measurement skills.

The clinic will involve a combination of instruction and practical measurement sessions. There are no particular requirements for candidates who wish to attend the clinic, but racing experience is desirable.  Numeracy and a facility with measurement tools will also aid prospective measurers.
