Volunteering for Duties

Until COVID restrictions are fully lifted (scheduled for June 21st) the RYA advises that mixed households may operate Club safety and race management boats provided they observe COVID precautions detailed in their guidelines see Covid page for links. Members must make a personal risk assessment in deciding whether to volunteer for Safety duties with a member of a different household. Duty Manager will display notices to this effect when you book a duty. If insufficient members volunteer during the restrictions races may have to be cancelled, hence making duties a condition of entry. However non-racing members are invited to sign up for duties in the series if they accept the COVID conditions. All duties undertaken this year will count towards the annual quota expected of members.

Online Series entries

Online series entries are intended to be a permanent way of reducing the workload for the Race team and the Results Secretary. Once signed on for a series competitors will only need to fill in an amendment sheet at the club if their details differ that day. (eg another crew type of boat and / or sail number.) The signing on register for each series will be via the the online entry email. At the end of each day’s racing the race team will photograph (in good light please so they are easily readable) and email the raw results to the Results secretary via her email link results@ncsc.org.uk on the club website. The original results sheets will be stored in the club Race Office as previously.
