PRINCIPAL RACE OFFICERS

We are always looking for new Principal Race Officers (PROs). PROs run the technical side of races, including the following roles:

  • communicate with Event Coordinator, volunteers and committee boat for that event
  • conduct skipper's meeting (if applicable)
  • assign roles to volunteers and train (check in, flags, timer, over early, radio, etc)
  • set start line
  • choose course
  • oversee starting sequence, finishing and scoring boats, and ensure all participants are accounted for
  • ensure a safe and fair race
  • present awards (optional)
  • coordinate with Event Coordinator about equipment return and feedback

Interested? We will train you on all aspects of being a PRO at STYC. Depending on your existing race and PRO experience, this generally involves some on and off the water mentoring and being a committee boat volunteer at least a few times, trying different crew positions and watching experienced PROs. In return, we ask that you be PRO for at least one race per year. Email us at volunteer@styc.org for more information.
