Race Officers are sailors who serve on-the-water as the Race Officer (previously known as the Officer of the Day or OOD) and control a race. The term Race Officer refers to the person in charge of running races. He or she is normally on the committee boat or in the start area ashore. The ISA recognises three categories of Race Officer; National Race Officer (NRO), Regional Race Officer (RRO) and Local Race Officer (LRO). The highest recognition is the ISAF qualification of "International Race Officer".

Course: ISA Judges Seminar 
Venue: Royal St George Yacht Club 
Date: 24th & 25th of March  

The Royal St. George Yacht Club in Dun Laoghaire is hosting an ISA Judges Seminar for all levels of race judge delivered by Bill O'Hara IJ, IU, IRO.

This is very interactive and interesting course for anyone who may be called upon to sit on a protest committee. It will be the only opportunity to train and qualify as an ISA Judge this year. Included will be a relatively easy rules test which is one of the requirements for qualification as a regional or national judge.
For details contact Ed Alcock, ISA Racing Manager on ed@sailing.ie.

The work of a Judge in the sport of sailing includes a wide range of services to competitors and race organisers, including the hearing of protests and requests for redress, deciding questions of eligibility and boat measurement compliance and being present on the water watching for rule infringements. The ISA has three categories of Judge; National Judge (NJ), Regional Judge (RJ) and Club Judge (CJ). The highest recognition is the ISAF qualification of "International Judge".
