Officials play a key role in any sailing race or regatta! Sail Canada Race Officer, Judge and Umpire programs provide training and certification from the Club to National level, with World Sailing providing International Certification. Event Volunteers are always in high demand! From helping out on site during an event to being a key member of the Organizing Committee, there is a role for everyone!
