The Club Race Officer course covers the duties of a Race Officer in charge of a race course, including organization, setting courses, starting, controlling events throughout the race and finishing procedures. A person should have some experience on a race committee, or a fair amount of racing experience. The course takes about 12 hours, and is usually given over 3 evenings or on a weekend for groups of 6 to 25 people.

Successful completion of this course is a prerequisite for Sail Canada Certification as a Club Race Officer (CRO). Certification for ARO and CRO is for four years. Assistant Race Officers (ARO) and Club Race Officers (CRO) are certified by the BC Sailing Race Management Committee. For more information on certification, visit the Race Officers page in the Race Management section of Sail Canada’s website.

Please select “I need copy of the Racing Rules of Sailing” check box on your registration if you require a rule book–BC Sailing is subsidizing the cost of the rule book. Candidates for ARO and/or CRO certification must have a rule book. The Sail Canada booklet “Join the Race Committee” is also required and available at the seminar at a nominal price if you do not already possess a copy.

Tea, Coffee and Lunch are included on both days. Paid parking is available on Stanley Park Drive and in public lots throughout Stanley Park.
