Race Committee Info
The Greater Richmond Sailing Association Race Committee is dedicated to running top quality sailing events while providing a fair and safe race environment for the competing sailors. Without the help of Race Committee volunteers, our regattas and racing events would not be possible.
Who can volunteer for Race Committee?
Any member can volunteer. You can be young, old, sailor, or non-sailor. There are many positions on the Race Committee that can be filled by a wide variety of people.
How do I go about volunteering?
Just contact our Race Committee Chair by email at RaceCommittee@grsa.org or sign up to volunteer here. The volunteer link has all the events for the year so you can check your schedule and pick what works for you. You can volunteer for as few as one event per year, although we encourage you to come out at least a few times a year. Not only can you sign-up for an event but you can also sign up as an alternate; someone we can call when we are short-handed. Additionally, a race committee sign up form is posted at the club.
I have never volunteered for Race Committee before. How will I know what to do?
We welcome all levels of experience. The best way to learn is hands-on. Come on out to an event and one of our experienced Race Committee Members will be happy to teach you the ropes.
