This class is for people who have some Race Committee (RC) experience, but newcomers are also welcome. Topics include RC objectives and responsibilities, regatta safety, writing sailing instructions, RC jobs, equipment, setting the course, starting system, starting penalties, before the start, during the race, finishing and scoring. The Club Race Officer certification test, available online at the conclusion of the seminar, is optional. In order to be certified as a US Sailing Club Race Officer, however, you must attend a complete seminar and pass the test, as well as own a copy of The Race Management Handbook and meet the program’s other criteria.
