The club judge course teaches people to read and understand the Racing Rules of Sailing, with the emphasis on developing skills using exercises. The course covers boat on boat rules, mark room rules, as well as protest procedures and using rules to participate in a protest hearing as a judge or competitor.
Ideally, the club judge will be considered the go to person in the club regarding rules and it is the first step towards judging at higher levels and to becoming a National Judge.
