UmpiresDEFINITION OF AN UMPIRE:
An umpire in the sport of Sailing is a person who functions as a race official by applying the rules of the sport (match racing or team racing) to racing situations, primarily on-the-water as situations occur, to resolve rules issues.
Knowledge of applicable rules (RRS, Appendices C & D, and their interpretations as found in the Call Books and Case Book) and a demonstrated ability to make decisions on-the-water as situations occur is necessary.
