RYA Midlands Race Officials and Rules Advisory Team
Racing is a proven way that people stay in the sport. But with modern lifestyles making time precious people feeling like they are always going to get a fair crack of the whip during a race is a key part of their motivation, enjoyment and involvement.
To make sure this happens the Midlands Race Official group exists to provide the most up-to-date advise on rules and race management for clubs and individual sailors too.
Their sole aim is to help improve the quality of racing at clubs in the region by providing training and support to our clubs.
So, how can they help you?
