After the race

Once on the shore

Write the results from the recording sheets onto the sign-on sheets and place them in the correct drawers in the race hut. Dont forget:
  1. Transfer the time for each boat onto the signing on sheets
  2. Make it clear whether you are entering the time direct from the RACE TIMER (i.e. the time on the clock from the start of the fast asymmetric start), or ELAPSED TIME (the time from the start of that particular race), or ACTUAL TIME (in which case the actual start time must be shown as well).
  3. Show the number of laps the boat (or class as a whole) has done
  4. Indicate clearly any reasons why a boat has NOT been given a finishing time (not through the line, capsized, DNF, too many boats finishing at the same time etc.)
Put the sign-on sheets out for the second race. Get some lunch. Race Officers are allowed / expected to jump the queue! You are the last off the water and need to be the first back onto the water again.


The afternoon race

Make sure you change the course.
  1. This might be needed because the wind has shifted.
  2. It will will allow different boats to have a different favourable wind direction (yet another opportunity for you to turn a normal day into a great day for 60 people!).
  3. You can learn from the course (and the comments!) in the morning to improve things in the afternoon.
  4. Slightly different reaching angles might help the Assymetric boats. Slightly different running angles might help others. A different beat might be needed as the wind shifts.
Remember to get onto the water AT LEAST 20 MINUTES BEFORE THE START. This means leaving the club house by 13:05, in order to start at the official time of 13:30.


At the end of the day

  1. Thank the AROs!
  2. Lock up the committee boat, returning the petrol, keys, electronic timer, radio, petrol, green bucket, race manual, clip-boards etc. to the correct places.
  3. Check with the OOD that everything is in order.

Breathe a big sigh of relief, and promise yourself not to hassle the Race Officer when you are racing - it is not as easy a job as it first looks!
