Qualification Requirements

Racing is an important aspect of sailing requiring the highest standard of race officials to manage events across the country.

The baseline RYA race official qualification is the RYA Race Official (previously known as Regional Race Official) with the senior level being the National Race Official. International race official qualifications are awarded by World Sailing and those at that level are automatically awarded the National RYA qualification in that discipline. The role and requirements of the RYA in the application process for World Sailing International Officials is outlined below in each discipline.
