There will be Club Judge Training Seminars & Tests offered at the Nepean Sailing Club on Saturday, November 15, 2014 and at the National Yacht Club on Saturday, November 22, 2014.

Attendance at a Club Judge seminar and the successful completion of the test are the first steps to fulfilling the requirements for certification and re-certification as Club Judge, valid for 4 years. It is intended that once an individual successfully passes the test as part of this seminar, he/she would make an application for Club Judge certification or re-certification.

NOTE: In order to re-certify as a Club Judge, one must again attend a Club Judge seminar and have a successful score on the written test before submitting an application for re-certification.

Participants should bring a 2013-2016 Racing Rules of Sailing book, note pad and writing implements.

Please note that registration MUST be completed by 12 noon on the Friday preceding the seminar.
