The list of Race Officials successfully approved for ISAF International Race Official status in November 2009 has been published on the ISAF Race Officials microsite.
ISAF has a global network of over 500 ISAF International Race Officials who ensure fair and competitive racing at the world's top sailing events. At the ISAF Annual Conference in November 2009, 38 first-applicants have been appointed ISAF International Race Official status for the first time, together with 147 successful applications for renewal.
ISAF Race Officials fall into four disciplines: International Judges (IJ), International Measurers (IM), International Race Officers (IRO) and International Umpires (IU). ISAF International Race Official status is valid for four years (two years for Race Officials over 70), after which time Race Officials must apply to renew their International status.
On the recommendation from its four Sub-Committees, the ISAF Race Officials Committee makes the decision on renewals and first appointments each year during the ISAF Annual Conference. All the candidates for status must fulfil mandatory criteria and meet the high level of standard of competence for each discipline.
