RYA Race Officials Bursary Scheme: We recognise that becoming an RYA qualified race official can be costly, but this should not be a barrier to achieving qualified status. 

If your club has an aspiring race official, you can recommend them for a bursary, this will cover the cost of an RYA race officials course including; race officer, judge, umpire, mark layer and measurer.
