Experience the excitement of officiating at the World Rowing Masters Regatta 2023

A regatta cannot be held without experienced officials. At the World Rowing Masters Regatta, racing is controlled by a Jury of internationally qualified World Rowing officials, assisted by local and visiting National Umpires called National Technical Officers (NTOs).

World Rowing Masters Commission

The Masters Commission plays an overall supervisory role through the planning and preparation for the Regatta. Their advice and guidance to the Regatta Organising Committee is invaluable. During the Regatta, the Masters Commission will maintain supervision of the event, working through the Organising Committee.

Race organisation - Jury

The racing is organised and controlled through a Jury. The President of the Jury will be a World Rowing Umpire and will be appointed by Organising Committee, subject to approval from the Masters Commission. The Masters Commission will also appoint an additional 24 international World Rowing umpires.

Race organisation - National Technical Officers (NTOs)

Around 40 NTOs are appointed by the Organising Committee to assist the Jury. Assistance is required for the pre-starter, starter, finish and control commission. In addition, marshals, bow number controllers and verifiers at the victory pontoon are required. Applications for NTOs has closed and the NTOs selected have been contacted.
