Race Team Duties

All members are encouraged to volunteer for club race duties during the season. Please sign up using the duty roster which can be accessed via the members' portal. A description of the roles required is shown below and training sessions on these are provided each season.

All regular race helms should feel able to volunteer as Race Officers and a pool of "mentor ROs" is being created to provide support to anyone tacking the role who would find this helpful. Contact Steve Marks (smmarks22@gmail.com) or Jeremy Western (jemw@blueyonder.co.uk).
