US SAILING AWARDS
US Sailing Awards Past Commodore Glen Vetter of CMCS and Summerset Regatta Chairman Steve Romaine the 2012 Outstanding Organizational Support and their continued efforts on behalf of youth sailing.
ESC Director Ross Webb receives US Sailing's award for Outstanding Outreach & Inclusion.
These national awards were presented during the 2013 US Sailing National Symposium in Clearwater, FL.
US Sailing announced changes to its Small Boat Training programs -
Level I Small Boat Instructors - remember to recertify with US Sailing online.
Acquiring a Level 2 certification is much simpler to achieve : it is a 2-day certification workshop. Once you complete Level 2, if you wish, you may move to one of two tracks: Instructor-Director track or a Coach Track. US Sailing has ramped up its training in such a way that you can earn either a Director's certification or a Coach Certification. The two higher levels, along with an Academy for each, have been designed to allow both online and face time access.
If you have specific questions, you are encouraged to contact the (new) training manager: [CristenSchifino(at)ussailing(dot)org] (401) 683-8000 ext644
Please feel free to share this update with other Level I instructors. This relates to the Sailing side of training.
