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 for more information.
