A COTD is required every Saturday between August and April (inclusive). We do not operate on a Saturday without this volunteer.
COTD = Captain of the Day. Runs the on-shore activities for the day. Drives a rescue boat. Assists the PRO on water, or in the absence of a PRO, multi-tasks and runs racing. During the Super Saturday Sprint Series, the COTD often runs the racing.
co-COTD = Co-Captain of the Day. Assists the COTD with the task list. Drives another rescue boat which is essential in winds over 10 knots.
PRO = Principal Race Officer. Controls the racing. (Also known as the "Paramount Race Officer" when Dear Leader is the running the racing).
Generally, arrival at 11am should allow enough time to get everything done.
The master copy of the roster for the COTD, co-COTD and PRO duties is found at this calendar: click here. Emails are sent out in advance of your Rostered Date. Members are encouraged to monitor their emails and the Calendar and advise if the suggested date is not possible.
If you don’t send a request to firstname.lastname@example.org volunteering for a Saturday by 15 July each year, you will be allocated a Saturday by the end of July for the following season.
If you need to change your allocated date email email@example.com as soon as possible but no later than at least four weeks before your duty. Every endeavour will be made to accommodate a change, but do not assume a swap is made until confirmed.
If you do not see your name on the Roster, email firstname.lastname@example.org to check when your date is as there may be unpublished changes.
