Race Officials

What are Race Officials?

Race Officials mission is to ensure quality, integrity and consistency for all participants in the sport of sailboat racing, from casual weeknight club racing to world championships. They are trained, certified and supported by World Sailing, and they have the resources of the organization at their disposal. Race officials are sailors like you who volunteer their time because they enjoy the work and because they believe in the importance of giving back to the sport.

What Do Race Officials Do?

Race Officials support you, the racing sailor, in their roles as Race Officers, Judges, Umpires and Classifiers. They run races, make umpire calls on the water, hear protests and redress requests in the jury room, and classify sailors to compete in disabled sailing events.
