Don’t Yell at the SCIRA Rep!

Thursday, 26 April 2018 07:40

By Gweneth Crook

What is a SCIRA Rep, who is the SCIRA Rep and what do they do? All major Snipe Championships have a SCIRA Representative who is assigned to that regatta.

The SCIRA Rep is a person who knows the Snipe Class and is there to ensure the regatta is run in accordance with the Deed of Gift, Rules of Conduct and the Sailing Instructions. The SCIRA Rep will also approve the Notice of Race and sailing instructions in conjunction with the organizing committee and Jury chairman, approve and sign any amendments to the NOR or SI's prior to posting, ensure that all competitors are currently registered with SCIRA prior to competition commencing, ensure that the boat and sail number being used by all competitors are currently registered with SCIRA and have passed measurement prior to competition commencing, and approve and sign the results daily prior to posting.
