Being a race officer at Shoreham

We offer a mentoring option for those new to being a race officer who would like to partner a more experienced member – please email the Dutyman co-ordinator if you are interested in this.


  • These guidance sheets have been written to provide information to assist club Race Officers to run races safely
  • These documents should be read in conjunction with the current Club Racing Sailing Instructions (SI’s), schedule of racing and aide memoires
  • As Race Officer (RO), you are responsible for making decisions on the day and this guidance does not override that responsibility
  • A Duty Committee Officer (DCO) is allocated for each scheduled race day and is able to provide advice and guidance if required
