Creating a new Club

This is an FAQ most often because Race Officers are wanting to use Buoy Zone at a club which hasn't been set up yet. This following covers the quick process for setting up a new club as an existing user.

In most cases clubs will be created and added to Buoy Zone during the registration process of any new user.

Option 1: Create a new club during registration

Have one of the team from the new club who has not yet registered for Buoy Zone go through the registration process. This will take them through the steps to either select from an existing club or create a new one.

Option 2: Change your Profile Club (See the video)

This option will see you change your Profile Club to the new club you’re looking to add. Through this process you’ll add the new club, but don't worry you can change back to your profile club once your done.

  1. From the main landing screen tap the "3 dots" menu top right of the screen

  2. Select Profile

  3. Change your Country / Club - Note if you search the club by entering its name that you'd like to add, and it is not there you will see that you have the option to Create a new club.

  4. Add the details of the new club and tap create.

  5. You can then leave your Profile club as the new club or change it back.

My support boats can’t see my course?

  1. As a race officer, make sure you have shared your course by clicking “Share” on the map view. This is the screen after you’ve set all your course settings.

  2. You’ll also need to make sure your course’s Host Club is the same as the club that your support boats are registered to. If it’s not the same they won't be able to see it! If they’re not seeing your course, the easiest thing to do is create a new course with the correct Host Country and Club selected - the default will always be the club which you are registered to under “My Profile.”

How can I change the club I’m registered to?

The club you’re registered to enables you to create and view your courses as well as those that are being used by other Buoy Zone members of the club.

To change your club, go to the home / main screen, click the 3 dots (top right corner) and select “My Profile.” There you can view and change your registered club.

See 'Creating a new club' as well - the shows the process of changing and creating a new club as an existing user

How can I assign someone as a club administrator?

By default the first person to register in a new club on Buoy Zone becomes an Admin. You can have multiple Admins within a club so there’s never an issue with anyone being unavailable.

On the home / main screen, click the 3 dots (top right corner) and select My Club. Here you’ll see everyone who’s registered to the club on Buoy Zone. As a club Admin you can assign further members as Admins by clicking the 3 dots by their name and selecting “make admin.”

What can I do as a club administrator?

Club administrators can change club details. In the future there will be more roles a club administrator can do.

Can I share my course with other race officers?

No, courses are unique to a race officer. You can reuse your own courses, the club view shows the most recently updated courses at the top of the list, so updating an old course will bump it to the top of the club list.

See Club Course Templates if you want to create a course for other Race Officers to use.
