NYC Mark Layer extra-ordinaire Mal Nowlan will share part of his in-depth knowledge on what to expect from a Race Officer and how to quickly and efficiently lay a small racing course. A National Powerboat  Certificate and a good level of confidence driving a RIB  are a pre-requisite.

Costs are left at a minimum to defray petrol & encourage participation for this up-skilling course.  Register Here
