You know what can be more stressful than sailing a laser in a 20 knot Westerly ? Running a race for 50 sailors in a calm 8 knot north easterly when you have no idea what you are doing.
We are calling for volunteers who are willing to commit to learning how to run a race. We are offering an opportunity for two people to run the winter championship races each fortnight, under supervision from an experienced race officer. This is a great opportunity to gain confidence and skills in running a race in a non-stressful situation.
There are three races each fortnight, every second Sunday morning at 8.30am, starting 5 May. Trainee race officers should be at the club at 7.30am to set the course and get in position for starts at 8.30. You will be home, with much improved skills, by 11 (after free hot soup and bread from the canteen). If you are interested in this opportunity, please email email@example.com.
By taking part in learning to run a race, you are ensuring your next PRO/CoTD roster will involve a lot less stress for yourself, and a far better race day for the fleet.
