PROGRAM TOPICS
Dave can present on many different topics. Three of his most popular presentations are:

Top Ten Tactical Tips - an advanced look at tactical positioning at key areas around the race
course, with an analysis of the applicable rules and decision making process in each. This
includes spectacular video shots of the tactics in action, shot from helicopters and mastheads.
When done in a Full Day Program, Dave creates an actual race customized to the conditions in
the local area, and participants sail the race making all the tactical and strategic decisions from
start to finish, with Dave’s feedback.

The Racing Rules and their Tactical Applications - in this presentation Dave goes through the
racing rules, including the new changes in the 2009-2012 rules, ensuring that sailors and
officials understand the rules and how to apply them to situations from common to complex,
with a look to how to maximize winning tactics with an increased rules knowledge.

Building a Winning Team - an in-depth look at how to put together a winning team, and how
to operate as one. Through humorous role plays and extensive scenario analysis, Dave fleshes
out the key roles on a boat, and shows how there is a role for everyone. In addition, he shares
proven communication and decision-making systems used by the top teams, and explores the
interpersonal dynamics which can often mean the difference between success and disaster.
