Race Team Duties
As a Club run entirely by its members, we depend on all our active sailors volunteering for the duties needed to provide a safe and enjoyable sailing programme. We understand that not every member may be able to undertake on-the-water duties, so our approach is:
- To encourage all members who are fit and able to volunteer for at least 1 Club duty. This may be a race or junior event duty (like the Assistant Race Officer or a Safety Boat role) or any other duties the Club sets up on the Roster.
- To expect members who race regularly themselves or have children who are racers to volunteer for at least 3 Club duties. Regular racers over 18 years should aim to become competent in the Race Officer role and the Club will facilitate this by providing training and a mentor", if requested.
Please sign up using the online duty roster on our website. A description of the roles we need to fill is shown below. We've a web page explaining how to use the online Roster or if you want more detail there's a downloadable guide. Don't hesitate to contact the Sailing Team if you want advice before signing up.
All regular race helms should feel able to progress to volunteering as Race Officers and we have a pool of "mentor ROs" to support to anyone tackling the role for the first time. Just contact the Sailing Team.
It's really important that volunteers for all roles report to the club house a minimum of 90 minutes before the advertised start time for racing.
Instructions for all of these roles can be downloaded via the links shown in the Table above.
