Club Race Officer courses, designed to help people who run club racing run better racing, are evening courses of around three hours instead of the previous one-day weekend courses.

The course addresses issues including:

  • What do I need to do before I go on the water
  • Discuss what sort of courses need to be set, what area of water to use
  • Setting the course and tips on setting the start and finish line – eg tips on how to set a square line and how long should it be
  • Guidance, hints and tips to set the best course for each of the different classes
  • How to 'run the perfect finishing procedure'

Any club that would like to run a CRO course should contact their regional Racing Rules Advisor for further details. Their contact details can be found by clicking the See Also Link to the right.
