Edgewater Yacht Club Race Committee

Sunday, June 30th


Race Committee is special group of people dedicated to sustaining and growing the sport of sailboat racing. Races don't happen without a race committee!

The Race Committee's work on the water involves setting up the race course, starting races, and recording the finishing competitors. There are many positions available, from mark setters, timers, flag signalers, and recorders.

Sound fun? You bet it is!

WHAT WILL I LEARN? You get to watch others make the mistakes you usually make, and get the opportunity to really learn about what makes good racers good. You also get a real understanding of the weather and what wind shifts do to the boats on the course.

DO I NEED EXPERIENCE TO VOLUNTEER? No! Just be willing to learn and take directions. You'll be taught everything you need to know.

TIME: Dock time is 8:45 am and you'll typically be back to the club around 1:30/2:00 pm.

WHERE? Meet at the Race Committee boat dock (south of the grill area) at 8:45 am. Ask for the Principal Race Officer (PRO).

WHO DO I CONTACT WITH ANY QUESTIONS OR CONCERNS? You can reach out to NCWSA board member, Tiffany Baker at memberatlarge@ncwsa.net.

WHAT DO I BRING AND WEAR? Bring your PFD, rain gear, sunscreen, sunglasses, hat, water, Dramamine, etc. Wear comfortable clothing that you don't mind getting dirty and read the Sailing Instructions (SIs)!

* The sailing instructions will be available at the EYC Clubhouse and online before May 15, 2019 at the EYC web site. https://www.eycweb.com/Home/Racing.aspx
