    • The RC boat (Alert) must have a minimum 2 people on board (max 4), the PRO and scorer/timer on board. 
    • Everyone on the RC boat & chase/support boat must be able and willing to assist with the race course, racers or any boat which needs assistance on the river.
    • The chase/support boat must have 2 qualified people, who are willing and able to drop & pick up marks. Additionally, this will include assisting racing boats/sailors, moving course marks and generally coordinating with the RC boat/PRO all race needs.
    • Both boats must have working radios and be in constant contact with each other.
  2. Fleet Captain responsibilities- Each fleet captain is responsible to fill the needs for race committee as posted on the yearly schedule. The schedule is available on the RC board and the MBC website.
    • Fleets hosting a regatta or any event will assume the responsibility of RC and their regatta needs. There may be times were a regatta or an event coincides with a series event. The regatta/event fleet will assume responsibility for the RC for the day. If 2 separate courses are needed, there will be separate fleets responsible for each event.
