The Sailing Leadership Forum runs four days starting February 1 through February 4. 

Participants include instructors, coaches, race officials, program directors, class/fleet leaders, yacht club management, organization leaders, and volunteers who will find key takeaways from this event. The presentations focus on participation and growth in sailing, best practices in operations and management, what’s new in technology and innovation related to sailing, safety education and instruction, takeaways for all types of sailors, and creative thinking and new approaches to modern challenges in the sport. 

Leaders from sail training and education, yacht club and sailing organization management, race officials, and industry professionals will meet and learn from one-another. The Forum will offer keynote speaker presentations and focused group sessions on a wide range of topics such as Growing the Sport, Developing Programs, Marketing & Communications, Administration & Management, Regattas & Racing, and Rules & Officials. The Sailing Leadership Forum will feature lively and fun social events, hands-on activities, exhibitor displays and demonstrations, pre- and post- forum clinics and seminars for instructor certification, race management seminars, Safety at Sea Seminars, and much more.

The US Sailing Level 1 Instructor course is divided into two sections that have been revised for 2023: 

- A 3-day in-person section of the Level 1 course is approximately 30 hours and students will be evaluated on their teaching ability, sailing skills, powerboat handling skills and on-water class management, among other topics.

- A self-guided online introduction section of Level 1. The self-guided section allows participants to learn at their own pace and includes no scheduled interaction with an Instructor Trainer. This online course must be completed prior to attendance at the 3-day in-person section. US Sailing recommends that the in-person section is attended within three months of the online course completion for maximum retention and successful completion.
