Request a Race Management or Club Judge Course today!

Ontario Sailing is encouraging member organizations to request Level 1 Assistant Race Officer, Level 1&2 (Club) Race Officer, and/or Club Judge courses.

The committees are now accepting applications from Ontario Sailing member organizations to host courses in the upcoming winter and/or spring.

This will aid Ontario Sailing and the committees to streamline potential overlaps (e.g. 4 courses being requested in the Toronto area resulting in cancellations of some courses due to low enrollment) and allow the committees to plan their seasonal course schedules in advance.

Please complete the application below and return it to Krystal at info@ontariosailing.ca.

Deadline for submissions: November 1, 2018
