HomeRace Committee Duty


Jacomo Sailing Club has the most active racing event calendar in the region and it's all because of our strong corp of volunteers who help out for all of our events.

To run successful, fun, and safe racing events, we need at least four volunteers to help out Primary Race Office.

Some of the skills you will assist with include being the timer, the spotter, the recorder, running the signal flags, skippering the rescue boat, and helping out sailors in distress. 

Race Committee is the best seat in the house to catch all  the action. It's a great way to learn by watching others sail and compete against each other. And there's always a good swapping of salty old sailor's tales on board the committee boat.

Education is the backbone of our organization and you will learn something new each time you volunteer!

To volunteer, just open our signup sheet below and add your name to the list on a date that works for you. No prior experience is required - feel free to sign up a buddy, too:
