Race Management Development Opportunities at CORK in 2020
CORK has always provided development opportunities for volunteer officials, helping them to practice and perfect the skills used to run sailing regattas.
In 2019, CORK started a more formal development program for Judges, giving them specific opportunities to work with and learn from more experienced officials on higher-level regattas. With 2 World Championships, 4 North Americans, and 4 National championships this summer, there were some great events to be part of!
In 2020 the program for Judges will continue, and CORK will also be offering development programs for members of the race committee, click a role title for details:
CORK is a great place to get real-life experience that complements the classroom training run by Sail Canada and the provincial sailing associations.

Development Opportunities for Judges at CORK in 2020
An exciting initiative was launched in 2019 providing learning opportunities for judges during the events at CORK. On water judging, arbitration, and protest hearing experiences were complemented by training sessions led by national and international judges.
In 2020, the goal is even more ambitious. During the three 2020 August regattas, the advanced judge training will be overseen by Chris Watts, (IJ-GBR) former RYA chair for Judge Training and Certification and World Sailing IJ Seminar Instructor and Pat Healy (IJ-USA) Chairman CORK Protest Committee.
Judges interested in developing their skills and gaining experience are invited to submit their applications to participate at one or more of the 6 events scheduled at CORK. Please indicate your current level of certification, your Appendix P experience, your judging goals as well as your racing experience. Applications should be submitted to CORK at: email@example.com.
