The Judges Committee develops, supports and certifies judges within the US; maintains the training and testing programs for certification; assists sailing organizations in obtaining qualified judges for events; provides support and advice on the roles and conduct of judges at US Sailing events; investigates complaints against judges; and submits candidates for approval by the Board as nominees for World Sailing International Judges.
Regional Administrative Judges (RAJs) are the judge administrators in each of US Sailing’s Areas. The RAJ is responsible for recruiting, encouraging and guiding members who wish to take a judge course, become certified, recertified or upgrade their certification level. RAJs also help organizers recruit judges for their events, place judges at events, schedule training seminars and answer judging and protest-related questions from members.
For more information about judges and judging, please contact your RAJ, who is identified by his or her Area in the table below.
