What to do when you are rostered for duty
All Senior Members are expected to do race management duty each sailing season on typically two occasions per season. Your allocations are notified to your email address via the ‘Dutyman’ software.
When a date does not suit you it is your responsibility to use Dutyman to seek a swap with another member for a like duty.

Non-attendance will score you penalty points, and be strongly frowned upon by those that have to cover for you, and the sailors who expect well organised and safe racing that day. Continue reading
