Race Officer Training

Our Club Race officers are an essential team who provided interesting and varied courses to our club racers. George Hoskins has a pivotal role on Council representing Race Management and supporting Club Race Officers. He can be contacted via email

As a Club Race Officer, you are expected to volunteer for 2 Sunday duties a year and there are opportunities to volunteer for additional club or open meeting events as Race Officer or as an assistant race officer. There is a training programme for those interested in becoming a Club Race Officer and there is a pathway for those club race officers that are interested in progressing to the role of Regional Race Officer.

A typical Club Race Officer duty involves coordinating with the race team prior to the day. Discussing the weather and buoy positioning with the safety boat coxswain. Setting the racecourse and briefing sailors. Starting races with the assistance of the race team using various flag & sounds signals, and calling back any boats over the line. Finishing races, writing down sail numbers and times to form a set of results. After racing helping to pack away equipment and inputting the results into the computer ready to be published onto the website.

Yearly training takes place for existing and new race officers. If you'd like to get involved or have any questions please do not hesitate to email or phone 01753 683872.
