ISAF International Race Officers (IRO) are invited to apply to be an International Technical Officer (ITO) and member of the ISAF Olympic Race Management Team at the 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition in Qingdao, China.
ISAF anticipates appointing possibly up to 45 ITOs to serve in various capacities on the ISAF Olympic Race Management Team. Positions include:
  • Race Officers
  • Deputy Race Officers
  • Pin Boat Line Sighters
  • Finish Boat personnel
  • Mark Boat Operators

Responsibilities for the ITO's will include

  • serving as trainers to local race management personnel
  • assuring consistency with international race management procedures established by ISAF
  • providing the best possible race management during the Olympic Regatta.

Applicants should be able to commit to the following three events:

  • 2006 Test Event, 18-31 August
  • 2007 Test Event, 10-26 August
  • 2008 Olympic Sailing Competition, 4-24 August

However, there may be special circumstances which could allow applicants to miss one of the test events.

Experience as a Principal Race Officer at the highest levels is not a requirement. ISAF is most interested in IROs with strong training skills and experience on Mark Boats, Finish Boats and Pin Boats.

The selection of IROs to serve on the ISAF Olympic Race Management Team will be made by ISAF in accordance with Regulation 18.12.2. ISAF will endeavour to inform applicants about their tentative selection by the end of February 2006.

Appointment to the ISAF Olympic Race Management Team will be subject to acceptance of all applicable rules, terms and conditions, and a code of conduct. Those selected for service will be provided with accommodation, and reimbursed for travel expenses.

International Race Officers wishing to be considered should submit a completed application to ISAF no later than 1 January 2006.

Contact ISAF Race Officials Secretary Trish MERRICK for further information.
