This is the current edition of the Race Management Handbook. No revision of the book is planned at this time.
This book is the race officer's how-to manual for every aspect of regatta planning and execution. It covers topics such as organizing events, preparing race documents, safety and risk management, race committee equipment and procedures, course configuration and course management, scoring, handicapping systems and much more. The 308-page manual, with numerous illustrations, lists and tables, is the definitive resource for quality race management, and is a required text for US Sailing race management seminars. It should be in every race committee's on-board kit.
