Race Duties

Bowmoor is a members sailing club. As a result of this, most club activities are organised by volunteers. As part of this, members are expected to take part in at least one duty per year. The vast majority of members take on a racing duty.


The Officer of the day is responsible for organising the days racing. This is for experienced racers only, though support and guidance for those who would like to know more is always on offer.
