Sailor & Parent Code of Conduct

SAILING PARTICIPANT CODE OF CONDUCT

Competitors are expected to comply with the Basic Principle outlined in the Racing Rules of Sailing. As a competitor you shall:

  •  Be tolerant of other users of the waterways and surrounding environs.
  •  Never argue with an official.
  •  Control your temper. Verbal abuse of officials and sledging other sailors/boating participant, deliberately distracting or provoking an opponent are not acceptable or permitted behaviour.
  •  Not abuse other crew members.
  •  Abide by the Yachting Australia Anti-Doping Code.
  •  Work equally hard for yourself and/or your crew. Your boat’s performance will benefit and so will you
  •  Be a good sport. Applaud your opponents when they get one up on you.
  •  Treat all participants as you like to be treated. Do not bully or try to take an unfair advantage of another competitor.
  •  Cooperate with your fellow sailors/boating participants, without them there would be no competition.
  •  Participate for your own enjoyment and benefit not just to please others.
  •  Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all participants regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.

PARENT/GUARDIAN CODE OF CONDUCT

A Parent/ Guardian should:

  •  Remember that children participate in sailing for their enjoyment, not yours.
  •  Encourage children to participate, not force them.
  •  Focus on the child’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  •  Encourage children to sail according to the rules and to settle disagreements without resorting to hostility, violence or abuse.
  •  Never ridicule or yell at a child for making a mistake or losing a race.
  •  Remember that children learn best by example. Appreciate good performances and skills displayed by all participants.
  •  Support all efforts to eliminate verbal and physical abuse from sport.
  •  Respect officials’ decisions and teach children to do likewise.
  •  Show appreciation of the efforts of volunteer coaches, officials, administrators and other helpers as without them there would be no sport for your children to participate in.
  •  Respect the rights, dignity and worth of every young person regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
