Mark the first weekend in November on your calendar for Irish Sailing’s upcoming seminar for prospective race umpires.

The two-day course on Saturday 3 and Sunday 4 November at the Royal St George in Dun Laoghaire provides the first step towards gaining an Irish Sailing race umpire qualification.

Guided by instructors Chris Lindsay and Cxema Pico, you will be introduced to the basics of team race umpiring, as well as how to make decisions in real time on the water, and will cover the relevant theory to apply.

Those who feel ready will also have an opportunity to sit the National Umpire exam — while all will be invited to the Irish Team Racing Nationals on 17-18 November to put what they’ve gleaned from the seminar into practice.

No previous experience as an umpire is required or this course, but a powerboat certificate (for piloting RIBs) and VHF licence are required, and experience or knowledge of team racing would be helpful.

More details are available from the Facebook event page HERE.
