Sign up for Auckland club judge course

Issue date

Yachting New Zealand are excited to announce a new club judge course to be held in Auckland in mid-October, Covid permitting.

The course is free of charge to members of affiliated clubs and will be targeted at people on race committees, race officers, coaches and sailors with a general interest in the Racing Rules of Sailing and the protest procedure. It will not teach people to become rules experts, but those taking part will be able to become a go-to person in their clubs when issues about rules arise.

The course will teach students to:

  • Know what to do when a protest is received
  • Be able to keep their club’s protest procedures up to date
  • Understand the important sailing rules as well as learn where to find rules and how to read them
  • Learn about participating on a protest committee at club level, and how to write protest decisions
  • Learn about arbitration
  • Learn about redress
  • Develop contacts for dealing with rules issues, as well as knowledge of the resources available
  • Be able to give sailors a 'rules session' in their club

The club judge course will be taught in four evening sessions and it is recommended you attend all sessions.

Venue: Richmond Yacht Club
Dates: October 11-12 and October 18-19
Time: 6pm–8.30pm
