"Carlyle" our start boat is responsible for officiating our yacht and laser fleet races. The boat hosts the Race Officer and two assistants who are timekeepers and raise and lower the flags.

You must have neat writing as your role is to write down the time the Race Officer announces when each competitor finishes.

No experience is necessary but you need to be comfortable on boats as once Carlyle anchors it remains in place until the final yacht crosses the finish line.

Lunch is provided and a beverage after the race.
