Australian Sailing’s Olympic Webinar Series has been developed to provide the sailing community with an opportunity to connect directly with some of the key players in Australia’s Olympic Sailing Team.
All clubs, members and participants are encouraged to register for the upcoming webinars which are set to interview Mat Belcher, Matt Wearn, Mara Stransky and some of the Officials that were involved in Race Management at the Tokyo Olympic Games.
Attendees are encouraged to come prepared with questions as this is your chance to ask them about their journey to Tokyo. Find out how they got involved in sailing, what their journey to Tokyo looked like or even how they prepare for big regattas.
Registration is required, and the full schedule and links are below. More details about past and future webinars are available at this link.
