If you enjoy working on race committees, the Birmingham Sailing Club would like you to learn how to become a Principal Race Officer (PRO) for Sunday races and, later, at regattas.

  • Organization
  • Race course setup/ conduction of races
  • Signaling
  • Scoring
  • Some new sailing rules
  • Roles of race committee members
  • Equipment
  • Rescue operations.
  • Follow-up on the water training

Workshop will be held indoors and all covid related safety protocols will be in place, including wearing face masks.

A light refreshment will be served but do bring a lunch.
