  All US SAILING and ISAF certified judges (and umpires) are invited to attend an all-day roundtable discussion at Long Beach Yacht Club on Saturday, January 22, 2005 on topics of current interest concerning the 2005-08 Racing Rules of Sailing. The Roundtable is intended for those who are experienced in hearing protests but would like to learn more. It is co-sponsored by www.racingrules.org and Long Beach Yacht Club. We will start at 9:00AM and go until approx. 4:00PM (note: this year's starting time is 1/2 hour earlier than last year).
  The format for 2005 will be slightly different from that for 2003 and 2004. Because the 2005-08 Racing Rules of Sailing go into efffect on January 1, 2005, the morning session will consist of an explanation and discussion of changes in the rules (be sure to bring your new rulebook!, see below for an electronic version of the 2005-08 RRS including US SAILING prescriptions). Note: 2005-08 rulebooks will be available for purchase at $15 each.
  The afternoon session will be the standard format, a group discussion concering topics of interest to the participating judges. If you have a topic you think worth discussing in the afternoon (especially a right-of-way incident) please send it in ahead of time so we can write it up and prepare a diagram. Alternatively, you may bring it with you to the roundtable. We will discuss at least 5-10 specific rules issues in detail.
  A charge of $15 for continental breakfast (coffee and dounuts), lunch (sandwiches and drinks) and handouts will be collected at the door. Pre-registration is encouraged (so we can plan the correct number of lunches and handouts) but is not mandatroy for certified judges. No certified judge or umpire will be turned away! To pre-register or for more information please contact roundtable2005@racingrules.org
