Regional Race Officer and Mark Layer Courses

Posted: 8/2/2017

From :

Robin Gray IRO  RYA Regional Race Management Coordinator and Denis Todd NJ    RYA Regional Rules Advisor

We have now confirmed dates for the two RYA Regional two day courses. 

The Regional Race Officer Seminar will be run at Ballyholme YC on 1st/2nd April.  The course is now viable but we have plenty of places left at present.

The Regional Mark Layer Course will be run, again at Ballyholme YC on 11th/12th March. The presenter will be David Frame NML from Cumbrae Sailing Centre who wrote the original Mark Layer course and trained all the mark layers for the Olympics.  This course is almost full – we have one place left – so contact me asap if you have a candidate – could take two at a pinch.

We can, of course, still arrange Club Race Officer courses at your club – these are designed to give the member doing his occasional duty on battery a bit of confidence.

We can also come to you and run a Club Mark Layer Course which will incorporate a short practical course on using GPS for course setting and moving – including trapezoid course.

There are very few clubs in Northern Ireland that have a Judge or Racing Rules Advisor – we can train a member or members so that a protest or arbitration (much quicker) meeting runs according to the rules – contact myself or Denis Todd to arrange.
