Race Officials

We are always on the lookout for new members to join the group that runs our racing events. It is a hugely satisfying hobby - and you can make it more or less what you want it to be, from a full commitment to the full programme to turning out once or twice a year; from gaining (or demonstrating) the experience to be the PRO running the event to being content to be 'just a spear carrier'. Either way, the RO team tends to have a good deal of fun together over a weekend as well as having the satisfaction of providing top-quality events for our members and competitors.

RTYC Race Officials are involved with running a number of the UK's most prestigious events, such as the European 2K, the BA Cup and the first four days of Cowes Week, where over 30 members man the Squadron platforms and a number of start/finish boats and mark laying boats.
