A club in Club2Class can be thought of as a collection of classes and special events.
Classes are collections of similar boats that race regularly at the club.
For example, you may have a class called "Fast Catamaran Class" that might include boats of boat classes "F18", "HURRICANE" and "TORNADO". This would be an example of a handicap class.
However, you may also have a class such as "RS800 Class" that might contain boats of a single boat class, in this case "RS 800". This would be an example of a one design class.
Special events are additional containers within a club. They are a collection of classes that can be defined specifically for a special event. In this way occasions such as an open event or club regatta can be separated and differentiated from regular club activity.
For example, special events can be used for national events with participants coming from different clubs (e.g. RS200 Nationals held at Itchenor Sailing Club), or for club regattas which have multiple different race series for different classes running simultaneously. In addition, special events have their own home page where social media and publicity for the event can be displayed and easily accessed by anyone, from anywhere.
Congratulations! If you have read this far then you have very likley set up the first class for your club. Now add more classes until you are happy with your club definition.
As a club administrator you may wish to allow others to help in the administration of tasks and share your workload, especially at the class level. Most classes typically have a Class Captain responsible for managing the class calendar, boats, members, events, communications and (sometimes) results.
You can delegate authority to manage specific classes to Class Captains, or other designated persons, from your Club Admin Tools. Go to the Class Tools () section, select Class Management Dashboard (), choose the relevant class and click on the Manage Class Administrator icon () from the respecitve options.
You can also delegate Club Administrator functions from within Club Admin Tools. To do this select the Manage Club Administrators icon () in the Club Tools section ().
Please note however that club administrators can perform many functions within Club2Class and so when you are thinking about assigning responsibility to another user you should bear this in mind. Permissions include:
Special Events can be created for regattas, open events or any racing that falls outside normal club racing. To add a special event, go to the Special Event Management Dashboard () which can be found in your Club Admin Tools under Special Event Tools ()
