International Umpires Seminars & Clinics

The Seminars and Clinics for Umpires are intended to improve the standard of regional / group umpiring and to assist people who wish to become an International Umpire. Both are hosted by Member National Authorities.

Information about hosting a World Sailing Seminar and Clinic is available here.

World Sailing International Umpires Seminars

A World Sailing Umpiring Seminar must be held in conjunction with a Match, Team or Fleet Racing event. The Seminar must include a minimum of two days classroom instruction, including the World Sailing written test, followed by a minimum of three days on-the-water umpiring at an event, where participants may undertake a formal Performance Assessment

The event should normally be a Grade 2 or 3 event for Match Racing (never a Grade WC or a Grade 1 event) or a similar level for Team Racing.

Although the minimum number of days on the water is three it is recommended to extend this to four days as this gives the attendees better possibilities to complete a successful performance assessment.

The seminar must be open to attendees from other nations than the hosting national authority.

Candidates who wish to attend an World Sailing International Umpiring seminar should either have a current appointment as a national Umpire or have attended an World Sailing Match Racing / Team Racing Clinic. It is required that they have experience of umpiring at national level.

World Sailing Match Racing / Team Racing Clinics

The World Sailing Match Racing and Team Racing Clinics are intended to introduce those disciplines to areas where there is little experience of those kinds of sailing. The Clinics teach umpiring to judges who have knowledge of the Racing Rules of Sailing but have little or no knowledge of umpiring.

The World Sailing Match Racing and Team Racing Clinics last for two / three days with 90% of the activities on the water.
