US SAILING’s two popular Symposiums, the National Sailing Programs Symposium (NSPS) and the One-Design Sailing Symposium (ODSS), will be held together over a five-day period in New Orleans, La., January 17-21, 2007. The National Sailing Programs Symposium, presented by Vanguard Sailboats and geared towards sailing program organizers, will kick off the events on Wednesday, January 17 and run through Sunday, January 21. The One-Design Symposium, created for one-design class organizers, will take place January 20-21 at the same hotel, the New Orleans Marriott at the Convention Center.
First created in 1983 and held annually since, US SAILING’s National Sailing Programs Symposium has, over the years, brought together thousands of sailing program organizers. Presented by Vanguard Sailboats, this Symposium is an outstanding event for any sailing program organizer, with numerous educational seminars and workshops on the agenda. The purpose of this annual Symposium is for participants to network with other organizers and to share ideas on what it takes to run a successful sailing program.
Created for sailors and one-design classes who would like to learn more about one-design sailing, US SAILING first organized the One-Design Symposium in 2004. The event has been a success from the beginning. With over 200 active sailboat classes in the U.S., topics at the Symposium cover the full spectrum from the nuts and bolts of building a fleet to the intricacies of keeping a successful class running smoothly.
