US Sailing Race Officer Workshop

February 16 and 17


INVITATION: Presented by US Sailing, this two-day Race Officer training workshop is open to everyone.

DESCRIPTION: Race Officials are sailors like you who volunteer their time because they enjoy the work and because they believe in the importance of giving back to the sport. They run races, make umpire calls on the water, hear protests and redress requests. Online testing for certification is included. Registrants will receive a link for online testing in the week before the start of the seminar. Online testing will be available for four weeks following the seminar. You do not need to take the test if you want the seminar for information but not for certification.

DATES AND TIMES: Saturday and Sunday, February 16 and 17. The workshop will be 0830 until 1730 hours.

LOCATION: Willamette Sailing Club, 6336 SW Beaver Avenue, Portland, OR.
