Officials play a key role in the organisation and management of any sailing race or regatta! These officials are largely made up of volunteers who are trained by the HKSF or other national or international bodies. The HKSF provides training and certification programmes for Race Officers, Judges and Umpires from the Club to National level. Officiating is a fun way to volunteer, get involved and contribute to the running of sailing competition.
Event Volunteers are always in high demand! From helping out on site during an event to being a key member of the Organising Committee, there is a role for everyone! Below are descriptions of the key roles.
If you are interested in supporting our sport and becoming a Race Officer please get in touch.
