US Sailing Match Racing Committee Launches The Dial Up Newsletter

The US Sailing Match Racing Committee (USMRC) has re-launched The Dial Up newsletter. The intention of this free newsletter is to regularly inform the North American match racing community of all the opportunities for match racing in North America, and for getting better at match racing whether as a competitor, umpire, race manager or event organizer. To maximize the spread of this news and information, the USMRC has created an email database of sailors interested in match racing in North America. “There is so much match racing going on in this region of the world,” said Dave Perry, chairman of the USMRC, “and we want to do all we can to ensure that people who want to get involved or get better have the information and resources they need to do so.”

Issue #1 of The Dial Up was recently sent to the new North American match racing database list. To see the issue, click here. If you are currently involved in match racing and did not receive the first issue, please check your ‘junk’ folder. If you would like to join this list and receive The Dial Up, simply click here to subscribe. There will also be mailings from time to time targeted at just youth or women match racers, or umpires, etc. When you sign-up, you can also indicate any of the specific groups about which you would like to receive information.

“If you are at all interested in match racing in any capacity,” said Perry, “I encourage you to sign up for The Dial Up immediately so you know what is going on. And please spread the news of this newsletter with other match racers in North America. I know you will find it very helpful.”
