US Sailing Basic Race Management Seminar: January 20, 2024
Because race officials play an important role in ensuring the fairness and quality of competition, racing sailors and US Sailing expect a high level of personal integrity and judicial temperament of certified race officials. The goals of this certification program are to standardize practices, provide structured training and continuing education, and ultimately make racing more enjoyable by improving the quality of race management.
Passing this course will certify the individual with a Club Race Officer certification. A Club Race Officer is expected to be able to properly run any race normally conducted at his or her local sailing organization, including organizing the race committee, writing sailing instructions and scoring the event.
