Parents/Carers & Spectators

  1. Remember that young sailors participate in sailing for their enjoyment, not yours.
  2. Encourage young sailors to participate, do not force them.
  3. Focus on the young sailor’s efforts and performance rather than winning or losing.
  4. Encourage young sailors to follow the rules and the official’s decision.
  5. Never ridicule or yell at a young sailor for making a mistake or losing in competition. Positive comments are motivational.
  6. Respect the decisions of officials and teach young sailors to do likewise.
  7. Condemn the use of violence, do not use foul language, sledge or harass sailors, coaches, officials or other competitors’ parents.
  8. Show appreciation for volunteer coaches, officials and administrators. Without them, your child could not sail.
  9. Applaud good performance and efforts from all individuals and crews. Congratulate all participants on their performance regardless of the events outcome.
  10. Respect the rights, dignity and worth of all competitors regardless of their gender, ability, cultural background or religion.
