Any CYA certified Club Race Officers (CROs) or National Race Officers (NROs) considering or intending to apply for their NRO or Senior National Race Officer (SNRO) certification within the next three years should consider attending this seminar as it may not be offered again in the Golden Horseshoe area for a few years. Successful completion of the seminar is a prerequisite for first-time applicants for NRO or SNRO certification.

There is already significant local interest in this seminar. If capacity is reached applicants may be restricted based on their level of certification or the estimated timing of their application for NRO or SNRO certification. Attendees are expected to bring their own copy of the Racing Rules of Sailing (2009-2012).

A no-host dinner for the participants is planned for the Friday evening at 1800.
