Club Safety Officer Needed

Kirk Marcolina

We made a request on the weekend for two new volunteers – one as Club Historian and one as Safety Officer.  Thanks to Richard George for volunteering to be Club Historian.  We still need someone to volunteer as Safety Officer.  The initial role of the Safety Officer will be to coordinate preparation of a curriculum and the conduct of four identical PRO/COTD training sessions on different days and at different times in the lead up to and during next sailing season.  All club members will be encouraged to attend one of the sessions.  The sessions will be conducted by various club members with expertise in the relevant areas.  Initial thoughts around curriculum include:

  • Course setting and mark laying
  • Race management
  • Davit use and RIB launch
  • Jazzman launch
  • Radio operation
  •  Incident management plan
  •  Emergency response
  • Off-water responsibilities

The purpose of the training is to ensure our members understand all aspects of the PRO/COTD roles and are best placed to conduct the high quality racing to which we aspire in a safe manner. Please let Andrew Cox (ar.cox@bigpond.com) know if you are willing to take on the Safety Officer role
