Do you want to become a qualified Teams Racing Umpire? Is your Umpire qualification in need of revalidation?

Registrations are open for the Teams Racing Umpire Seminar being held in April in the lead up to the National Secondary Schools Teams Racing Regatta.

Date: Friday 21st and Saturday 22nd April, 9am-5pm 

Venue: Sandspit Yacht Club

Cost: Free

This seminar is suitable for anybody with a basic understanding of the rules or teams racing. This seminar provides a great basis for umpiring at local events, and attendance is a prerequisite requirement in attaining Club or National Teams Racing Umpire Qualification. An opportunity will be given to those who wish to sit the exam to gain Club/National Umpire Teams Racing status, with On the Water practical assessments/evaluations occurring during the regatta.

The first day of the seminar will include basic umpiring techniques, communication between umpires, some rules including definitions, boat positioning, Appendix D to 2.2(c), umpiring practice in the classroom and some calls from the call book.

On day 2, we will consider umpire decision making, Appendix D2.29d0 to D5.3, rule 42, redress and damage, some umpiring issues, calls from the call book, regatta relationships, YNZ NU requirements, and the format of the exam and on-water assessments. 

Morning/Afternoon tea and lunch will be provided to the attendees.

Inexperienced umpires, and certainly those who have not passed the exam to Club Level, should attend both days.  Experienced umpires looking to revalidate may attend the second day only.
