Race Officials

Those wishing to volunteer on Swan for Season 2021 – 2022 should contact the club captain at qlyc.captain@gmail.com and register to take part in a workshop in September below

The club captain and Vice Commodore will guide you through some of the nuances of race management at QLYC and introduce you to the QLYC Swan training as part of an induction program.

Race Officers Guide

Race Officers must
– be accredited Club Race Officers with Sailing Australia
– hold a Marine License
– hold a VHF radio License, and
– have completed an induction program through the QLYC.

The attached race officers guide gives some basic information you will need to complete the induction, and also helpful tips for acting as a skipper or crew on our committee boat Swan.
