Race Committee

Hey folks, Philippe here. I run the race program at WSC, and you’ll hear from me from time to time. We are a volunteer club, so please do your part to help our racing series thrive!

Roles for Race Committee

RC Lead: Responsible for leading race operations for that particular event
Race Committee Barge Support: Assists in operations on the RC barge (time recording, flags, horn)
Safety Boat Driver: Operates the Safety power boat & safely navigates while assisting
Safety Boat Support: Assists on the Safety Boat (anchor, capsizes, other)

I created this cheat sheet to help run races. The document is also found in laminated form in the Race Committee clam shell document holder.
