Race Officials

Our sport is always on the look-out for more Race Officials to support the regattas which are held throughout the country. 

Race Officials and regatta volunteers are the backbone of Rowing New Zealand. They contribute their valuable time and expertise in assisting rowers of all ages to develop their skills and enjoy our sport.

Whilst rowing experience is useful, it is not a prerequisite since extensive training will be given. 

It is an interesting and challenging activity offering the opportunity to become involved out on the water, in the starter box, regatta administration, or judging the finish line and race control.

Race officials work quietly and efficiently behind the scenes making sure that the regatta happens and is fair and safe for all the rowers to participate in.

If you're interested in becoming a Race Official, contact Mark Weatherall at Rowing NZ for further information.
