With the JSA celebrating its Centennial this year, the ongoing partnership between Zim Sailing and Regional Sailing Associations provides a perfect opportunity to bring the popular collaboration event to the Mid-Atlantic Region.

“2024 marks the 100th year of support for junior sailing programs by the JSA,” said Bob Whittredge, Executive Director. “The JSA coordinates educational activities to enhance the effectiveness of its member junior sailing programs in the Long Island Sound region, and this Zim Regional Roundtable will be a fine opportunity for program leaders from the entire Mid-Atlantic region to share experiences and gain insights.”

The Mid-Atlantic Regional Roundtable will be a special 2-Day event, with a “Competitive Sailing” focus on Friday and a “Recreational/Learn to Sail” focus on Saturday.

Focused topics within the “Competitive” and “Recreational/Learn to Sail” daily sessions are not fully developed yet, but will be published on Zim’s Regional Roundtable webpage once finalized. Zim and JSA of LIS are open to suggestions from registrants about topics of interest, which can be emailed to David Neely at neely.dave@gmail.com.

Participants are welcome to attend one or both days of the Mid-Atlantic Regional Roundtable, but are advised that there are two separate registration forms for the “Competitive” and “Recreational/Learn to Sail” sessions.

Registration for the Zim Sailing Regional Roundtables are always FREE, and include a light breakfast, free lunch compliments of Gowrie Group – Risk Strategies, and attendee swag bag. The complete Zim Sailing Regional Roundtables updated schedules, registration links, and resources can be found at zimsailing.com/regional-roundtables.
