Why You Should Join Our Committee Boat!

Why You Should Join Our Committee Boat!

Committee Boats are one of the most important part of any regatta or race, without them we couldn’t do what we do.

The Committee Boat is responsible for starting and finishing the racing. The Committee Boat is led by the Race Officer and supported by the crew aboard made up of the Committee Boat driver, timekeeper(s), people responsible for the Flags (raising and lowering to indicate timings visually), a recorder(s) to take the finishing boats details and another person for the sound signals.

Working on the Committee Boat is a huge responsibility and great way to be a part of the event. The opportunity to get out on the water, in the middle of the action with a great group of people and making new friends.
