None of our racing would be possible without volunteers helping to run races, and Owners are expected to take a duty as Race team at least once per year. To facilitate the sailing committee organising the volunteering we will be using the system contained within the sailing events website;

For a series race we like to have a minimum of three people, at least two of which should be able to go out on the Committee boat. The third is the scorer who can work remotely. The two on the committee boat are the Race Officer and Deputy Race officer. We are looking from now for volunteers from the boat owners/racers to volunteer to run races on a number of dates. By going to the website you can volunteer. The instructions are as follows;

1) Go to

2) Top right hand side

Click Login and using your previously advised user name and password open your portal. (If you have never had or have forgotten your password please email and we will organise a new one)

3) Click Duty Roster

You will find a long list of opportunities. Just click in the green box for the date(s) where you are available and wish to volunteer. You will receive from the website an email confirming your choice. Should your circumstances change you will be able to swap with others if you need to. Reminders will be sent to you a week before your duty.

Should we be unable to fill duties then we will allocate dates to boats.

We will be running during March some training/familiarisation courses to help sailors fulfill the roles. Please remember that when a regular sailor does a duty they are scored in the following manner

OODs who normally race will receive their average points for the races in which they have competed during that series, or third position whichever is lowest, for any race missed in that series while serving as OOD, calculated at the end of the series.

So lets get started in filling the roster.

Thank you

Combined sailing committee
