Duty Roster/Dutyman


The Dutyman System was introduced in 2011 to:
a) Allow an up-to-date view of the duty roster to be maintained that is accessible to members
b) Make it easier for people to volunteer for duties and to swap duties.

DutyMan is used nationwide by sport clubs including golf clubs and sailing clubs. It is free for members to use and works well.


DutyMan Website link: DutyMan, or search for Royal Forth from the main DutyMan site
Dutyman user Guidance: Quick Start Guide to DutyMan

The link above takes you to the tool, allowing you to see what the duties are to manage your own duties. At the start of the season there is an opportunity to volunteer for duties, If you are unable to do a particular duty, there is the option of arranging a swap via the system. What cannot be contemplated is just not turning up for an allocated duty.

Race Duty Roles

The following are the key roles which need to be filled for most races. Some of the roles require some experience, which can be provided by working as an assistant and/or short training sessions. Additional helpers are always welcome.

  • Race Officer – the key official – requires experience/training
  • Assistant Race Officer – suitable for beginners
  • Royal Forth Driver – requires experience/training
  • RIB Rescue/Safety Boat driver – requires experience/training
  • Rescue/Safety Boat Assistant – suitable for beginners

Without these roles being filled (the number varies from event to event) there can be no effective racing and we suffer as a sailing club.  Please make sure that you volunteer for a mixture of weekend and evening events over the coming season.
