International Race Officers - National Race Officers
The objective of the scheme is to provide experience for National and International Race Officials, including:
how international events operate
experience for National Officials to help them become a World Sailing(WS) Race Official
events to apply or reapply for WS Race Official status
It is also intended to help event organisers with the provision of Race Officials(RO) to work at international events and in doing so to improve standards and consistency of these officials for the benefit of sailors.
A basic principle of the Exchange Programme is that nominated RO’s should be available to Organising Committees (OC) without them incurring travel expenses. Travel expenses, to a convenient and mutually agreed destination (airport, railway or bus station, ferry terminal, or car expenses) should be covered either by the MNA of the nominated Race Official, or by the Race Official themselves.
Travel expenses from this point, to and from the venue, will be the responsibility of the OC. The OC should also provide comfortable accommodation and all meals throughout the event and should be treated as a guest while in the host country.
This program is open, on a voluntary basis, to Member National Authorities in good standing with EUROSAF.
Event Organisers can only apply to the scheme through their local MNA.
No individual Race Official can be specifically requested through this program.
