US SAILING’S One Design Sailing Symposium
November 13-14, 2010

Corona del Mar, Calif.
Plan to attend the US SAILING One-Design Sailing Symposium. The ODSS is for all sailors who care about class growth and participation. The ODSS brings together racing rock stars and legendary one-design leaders in our sport to one venue for a great exchange of ideas and information. Keynote speakers include Gary Jobson, Tom Leweck, and Tom Schock.
This year there is special emphasis on media and classes. Learn about RP, websites, photography, video, and social media. Learn how to effectively promote your class.
The OSS is design for fleet officers, fleet builders, class officers, regatta organizers everyone else who cares about growing one-design sailing. Many classes are sending sailors. Some even pay the registration for class representatives.
